AS400 Subsystems Test

This test monitors the subsystems on the AS400 server and reports the number of active and inactive subsystems.

Target of the test : An AS400 Server

Agent deploying the test : An external/remote agent

Outputs of the test : One set of results for every AS400 server being monitored.

Configurable parameters for the test
Parameter Description

Test Period

How often should the test be executed.

Host

The IP address of the host for which this test is to be configured.

Port

The port at which the specified host listens. By default, this is NULL

ServerName

This test connects to the AS400 server being monitored to extract the required metrics. Therefore, specify the name of the AS400 server to connect to in the ServerName text box.

UserID

To enable the test to login to the specified AS400 server, you need to provide the test with the credentials of a valid user to the AS400 server. Hence, specify a valid userid.

Password

Provide the Password that corresponds to the specified UserID.

Confirm Password

Confirm the password by retyping it in the Confirm Password text box.

Detailed Diagnosis

To make diagnosis more efficient and accurate, the eG Enterprise suite embeds an optional detailed diagnostic capability. With this capability, the eG agents can be configured to run detailed, more elaborate tests as and when specific problems are detected. To enable the detailed diagnosis capability of this test for a particular server, choose the On option. To disable the capability, click on the Off option.

The option to selectively enable/disable the detailed diagnosis capability will be available only if the following conditions are fulfilled:

  • The eG manager license should allow the detailed diagnosis capability
  • Both the normal and abnormal frequencies configured for the detailed diagnosis measures should not be 0.
Measurements made by the test
Measurement Description Measurement Unit Interpretation

Active subsystems

Indicates the number of active subsystems available in the system.

Number

The detailed diagnosis of this measure, if enabled, reveals the name of the subsystem, the number of active jobs, the name of the library, the number of maximum active jobs and the current status of the subsystem.

Inactive subsystems

Indicates the number of inactive subsystems available in the system.

Number

The detailed diagnosis of this measure reveals the name of the subsystem, the number of inactive jobs, library, the number of maximum active jobs and the current status of the subsystem.
