The followoing messages can be seen in the HISRV joblog, but do not appear on z/OS thus cannot easily be automated, while they are (can be) instrumental in determining correct functioning of HISrv:

NK8030 HIS INITIAL TOPOLOGY COLLECTION STARTING. H/W INTERFACE: BCPIi

NK8031 HIS INITIAL TOPOLOGY COLLECTION FINISHED. H/W INTERFACE: BCPII      

 

These moments can be as far apart as 5 minutes, and all this time the BCPii interface wil not work.

We'd like to have an indication so we're sure we can use the BCPii interface from CA-OPS/MVS thus need those (esp NK8031) messages to indicate the HISrv task as UP in SSM (e.g)

Hi Marcel,

 

Hennie Herman's informed me that there is an existing CA HISRV PTF that seems to provide the desired behavior.   Please review RO92678.

 

Thanks,

Dave...

WRITE TOPOLOGY COLLECTION MESSAGES TO SYSLOG

PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
HISRV topology collection messages are only written to the HISLOG and
therefore cannot be used to trigger automation processes. HISRV is
updated to also write the messages to SYSLOG/OPERLOG so that they can
be used to trigger automation processes.

SYMPTOMS:
The following messages are only written to the HISLOG:
NK8030 HIS INITIAL TOPOLOGY COLLECTION STARTING. H/W INTERFACE: BCPII
NK8031 HIS INITIAL TOPOLOGY COLLECTION FINISHED. H/W INTERFACE: BCPII
NK8032 HIS INITIAL TOPOLOGY COLLECTION ERROR. H/W INTERFACE: BCPII

IMPACT:
Automation processes cannot be triggered from HISRV topology collectio

Hi Marcel,

 

there is a solution for writing the NK8030, NK8031 and NK8032 message of HISRV to the SYSLOG/OPERLOG..

See ptf RO92678 : write topology collection messages to SYSLOG.

Hi Marcel,

 

Our assessment of this Idea is that this enhancement request is to the CA HISRV product, not to the CA OPS/MVS product.  Therefore we are transferring this Idea to the CA Performance Management Community. where the CA NetMaster product team can assess its merits.
