You can get the job info using FTP commands.

Hi!

nothing to be done on the windows/linux/mac side

You would access the info thru a web client ....

on the host side You would need to setup a web server and develop a suitable application to interface the jes address space to extract the needed info and format it as a web page.

<rant ON>
I wonder if Your organization is aware of the complexity of such a task ??
<rant OFF>

regards

Hello,

Do you have a requirement definition - preferably something with detail rather than generalities like "job info"?

Beyond detail requirement specs, do you have an idea of what you want on the "web page"? Who will be the user(s) of this once developed?

Given that most remote connectivity to ibm mainframes is done via tcp/ip these days, what might be gained using a web app versus any one of the many "3270" apps that already exits?

Keep in mind that the "lower" into the system you go to get your results, the more likely operating system enhancements/changes will cause your interface and presentation code to change.

If you post more of what your requirement is, we may be able to offer better suggestions. As Enrico mentioned (and i'll paraphrase), the deeper you go, the greater the complexity.

Hi,

My requirement is to automate Job monitoring. Perhaps the discussion above doesn't exactly deal with that but since it deals with pulling up the job information, therefore I am curious to know how does it happen.

If not via the web pages, then can you please suggest me some other way to automate job monitoring. In my team, many man-hours are lost in manual job monitoring. By automating job monitoring I would save those hours.

Hello,

You will need to provide details on what "job monitoring" means to you/your site. If you describe what parts of the jobs you are interested in, we may be able to offer suggestions. From what you have posted, we can be of little help.

What kinds of things are you doing manually that you want to automate?

Are you trying to create a custom version of Omegamon or T-Mon? Is that even the type of data you want?

If your organization is using scheduling software, there are usually ways to "monitor" jobs with them.

Let us know what you are looking for. . . .

Hi d.sch,

In Job monitoring, we (in our project) basically view each and every scheduled job and see whether they have run successfully or not. Let me explain you with the help of following example:

Lets say I have a scheduler that runs the following jobs:

Job1 at 11:30 AM
Job2 at 12:30 AM
Job3 at 13:30 PM
Job4 at 14:30 PM
Job5 at 15:30 PM

So we have to go to the spool at the above mentioned timings to see if the Jobs have run fine or not. That's what we do in job monitoring.

Now my requirement was to automate this whole process. Like as soon as the job completes <unsuccessfully>, I should be getting an email stating that the job has failed.

Can I somehow achieve that. Or do you have any other idea on how I can automate the above mentioned job monitoring.

Anykind of help in this regard would be really appreciated.

Regards,

If you are using a scheduler there is an option to send email notification for each job. Again this depends on what type of scheduler your site as!

If the scheduler doesnt have this capability then you can write Email notification step at the end of job to notify job completion.

Hello,

You could put an e-mail step in each of the jobs that will send a message when the job abends. You could also send a message when the job successfully completes if you want. If there is a runtime jcl error, you won't be able to send the message as the job will have teminated before it gets to the e-maiol step.

If you have a scheduling package, you might consider tracking the jobs using facilities in the scheduling software. Your scheduling people can help with how to use what is available.
