TSM Backup status monitoring

Asha

Hello...

We are planning to setup a TSM backups monitoring task for our L1 team with the help of scripts running thro' crontab which can run every 15 mins once on a daily basis...This will be displayed and monitored continuously.. Incase of any backup missed or failed they will be escalating to the next level.. This is the overall idea...

I could only think of this comman but not sure of how to write a script to enable it to run in the foreground:

dsmadmc -id=admin -pass=TSMadm1n -dataonly=yes "q ev * * begind=-1 endd=today" | egrep -i "completed|failed|missed|severed|Started|In Progress|future"

Can anybody suggest some other scripts that can help for my requirement...??
Awaiting your earliest reply in this regard..

Thanks in advance,
Asha

TSM operational reporting- Is that feasible to implement at your end?. I feel its a flexible tool for monitoring & reporting.

Hi Chad..

Actually my requirement is for monitoring the backup continously and not just to check the status.. Something like a script running in a loop with while-do is what I am looking for so that the operators can monitor the q eve * * running continously on their monitors..

Any help on this??

Thanks,
Asha
