Robot/CONSOLE, an iSeries monitoring and message monitoring tool from Help/Systems Inc., is helping companies manage their iSeries resources to assure that the system runs at its full potential. - Help/Systems, Inc., developer of the Robot Automated Operations Solution for the iSeries, announces the release of Robot/CONSOLE 4.0, the newest version of its message management software. Robot/CONSOLE 4.0 not only continues to handle iSeries messages, it now monitors resources and FTP, QHST, and the security audit journal. With iSeries monitoring from Help/Systems users have more reasons to feel confident that their iSeries is running at its full potential.

iSeries monitoring assures that users will never be caught off-guard if a critical line, device, server, job, subsystem or other resource — becomes unavailable. Robot/CONSOLE checks the status of defined resources at regular intervals, allowing it to take immediate action if it finds a problem. A resource whose status is not as expected triggers a message. Robot/CONSOLE then uses its powerful message-handling and message log monitoring capabilities to react to the situation, either by executing a procedure or sending a message to an expert.

System and message log monitoring helps manage FTP requests, the security audit journal, and the system history log (QHST). By actively monitoring these system logs, users can see at a glance who executed an FTP transaction, who modified a system value, or the number of objects that were not saved in the most recent backup. A logged event produces a message, allowing users to define Robot/CONSOLE message management procedures to handle the message.

Robot/CONSOLE 4.0 also introduces message groups, which allow users to group messages into logical categories based on the source of the message. Users might define message groups by application, by programming groups, or other company-specific departments. When a message arrives on a message queue, the message group can determine the type of processing that should take place.

With Robot/CONSOLE iSeries monitoring from Help/Systems companies are able to regain control of their iSeries system. Resource and message log monitoring is essential to keep iSeries running at its full potential and to utilize all resources available.
