Dear all,

Now I have a request to monitor something online source. Since my shop dont use a 3rd party monitoring tools, I try to create some.
my design is like a batch program triger an online program to monitor the log file. if found the log file contains the warning text. the online program could pass error flag back to batch program.
for the batch call online part, I use the EXCI function. But when i check the IBM book. found that the EXCI only pass data back to batch when the EXCI function error. Means if link goes ok, there is no more infomation return from my online module then.
Any master could help me to solve this problem? Or have a better method? Thx a lot!

Try using an interface file/database.

My first recommendation is to spend the money to buy a monitoring program. This type of programming has many places where you could cause problems for the system, and it requires a strong knowledge of many different control blocks within z/OS. Without the knowledge already in place, it probably would be more expensive to write your own routine than to buy one. Management won't go for it, of course, but you should try that first.

as Tanstaafl suggests, recommending purchase of some vendor software
that will solve your problem same day its installed will be more impressive to management rather than spending days/weeks, trying to
invent something that you don't have the skillset for.
