    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.

    TSM Operational Reporting has been replaced by TSM Reporting and Monitoring. I would suggest you use it.

    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

    Thanks,

    Post is 6 years old. I recommend you start a new post. A lot of things have changed in 6 years.
