First Option is pleased to announce the newest version of iSeries Watchdog by First Option.

iSeries Watchdog by First Option is a new iSeries system monitoring solution that was originally developed to assist with First Option’s iSeries outsourcing business. It is now being marketed as software as a service (SaaS) , where a secured connection will be established to the customer, and client software installed to gather the key health statistics of your System i (AS400) server. A monthly fee is charged that includes rental of the client software and graphical front end.

iSeries Watchdog collects key health indicators of System i servers and displays them in a color coded GUI interface. System problems, halt messages, tape drive status, DASD, CPU percentage and disk status are some of the indicators displayed.

New Features in 2.0 Include:

  •     Ability to monitor and report messages of specific jobs to defined user groups.
  •     Ability to respond to QSYSOPR messages via the GUI.
  •     Ability to define the number of times to send alerts for QSYSOPR messages.
  •     Automated version upgrade/PTF detection and distribution.
  •     Ability to customize email distribution groups for alerts. For example, user groups for 8-5 help desk staff and one for after hours staff.
  •     Ability to maintain system downtimes by day, time and duration.
  •     Ability to set message actions to bypass certain email groups.
