Issue/Introduction

Hi,

We had a Netmaster Monitor alert that was shown at the Netmater Primary Meny. I had to logon to Netmaster to see this warning.

I wonder it the monitor alerts could be written to the SYSLOG?

If possible, I could pick it up and use our automation package (not Netmaster).

Regards

Environment

Release : 12.2

Component : CA NetMaster Network Management for TCP/IP

Resolution

You could create an ALERT EXIT which would be driven each time an ALERT is created.

You specify the EXIT NAME in the ALERTS parameter group.

NMCS81--------------- Customizer : Parameter Group -

Command ===>

Es ALERTS - Alert Monitor Interface sssssssssssssssssss
e
e Alert Monitor Exit
e Alert Exit Name ............ KGAMEXIT
e External Alert Receiver



In the NCL would look like the following.

FOR TESTING - I would suggest to COMMENT OUT the &WTO line and UNCOMMENT the &WRITE lines.

This will allow the messages to go to the NM log and NOT the system log.

I prefixed the messages with NETM1234 - you can pick any message id you want.

Make sure to UNLOAD PROC= each time you make changes to it.

This will removes the OLD one out of memory.
