Look at the doc for the V3 ADSM server.
It is supposed to include its own monitoring capability.
You can set up definitions to have the V3 server trap any message(s) you
want, and send alerts to MVS Netview, or to any SNMP monitor (such as
AIX Netview or HP OPenview). Or send them to a user-written program.
Or record them in a flat file. Or have some alerts go one place and
some go another. Or have them all go everywhere!
Now, I have only seen the doc for the TME 10 interface, and only seen
the doc for the V3 server, I haven't tried using either one myself..
But if I understand it correctly, the V3 server would make the TME 10
product unnecessary (unless you did indeed prefer the TME user
Has anybody actually tried the V3 implementation?

IBM's Tivoli TME 10 suite of products was touted as having a
interface for ADSM, however, once the TME 10 suite was brought
on board at
my company, I was unimpressed with what the I/F had to offer.
There was a
component within TME 10 that would capture messages (from any
deal with them appropriately (i.e., page an on-call analyst
according to an
on-call list, send an e-mail, multiple pages to all concerned
etc.). This component relied heavily on Netview (and other
things I'm sure,
but I don't have absolute specifics), but it seemed to me that I

The I/F itself was just a pretty front-end that gave the same
"feel" as the other TME 10 components, but added no value to

travel, etc. ---
these were the things I was most interested in).
I had the powers that be here send the TME 10/ADSM interface

for a software credit. If this is roughly what the vendor was
at the conference, it may not be worth your time and effort. If

usual, someone may be trying to get one step ahead of the

A few months ago at the Storage Synopsum in SF I heard a
pitch by a lady concerning ADSM Management with TME. She
represented a company that planned on making a TME product
that would automatically handle ADMS alerts, etc. Somewhere
I lost my notes. Does anyone know what company she represented
Did this product ever get developed. Can someone fax me the
