iEventMonitor in a multi-LPAR environment

Home : Kisco U : iEventMonitor in a multi-LPAR environment

iEventMonitor must be installed on all LPARs and must be at the same software level.

Check the software level by running option #5 on the INSTALL menu on each system to make sure that the release level for iEventMonitor is the same. Do not proceed if the release levels do not match.

The active monitors on a system are stored in a database file named TWCHLOGF in library IEMLIB. While iEventMonitor is inactive on both systems, you can save this file on your source system and then restore it on your target system. Once done, the monitors will all be available on the target system.

For the message queue monitor, you will also have to copy the following three additional control files:

  • TWMONEXMSG
  • TWMONOR
  • TWMONRTG

If you are running other features in iEventMonitor, contact support@kisco.com for possible additional details.

The global settings in iEventMonitor are all stored in a data area named IEMCONTROL in library IEMLIB. To copy the global settings, this data area (*DTAARA) object must also be saved on your source system and restored on your target system. After restoring on your target system, you should run option #9 on the INSTALL menu and check the "Default Alert Subject" setting and the "IEM Respond Page Heading". We recommend that this be unique for each system so that when an alert is issued, you can easily determine which system issued the alert.
