I want to set up a scheduled job to test various CICS regions and email me if they are not up. Sometimes the service provider automation notices are not being sent and we don't find out until customers call in with logging in problems.

I just want an easy way to run a job that 'pings' a CICS region and emails me if it's not up. I am not familiar with CICS but can issue MVS commands in JCL.

I do have jcl to email me and can use the Cond=Only as a subsequest step. What is the first step?

Instead of pinging, would it be ok to just check if the task (STC) is active, i.e. using the SDSF REXX API?
