Issue/Introduction

We are planning to replace Tivoli with UIM but before that, we want to get some insights from Broadcom's perspective - are there any active developments/enhancements going on/planned for AS400 system monitoring in your product roadmap? As I can see a few of the probes haven't had any updates over the past few years. For example:

diskstat

Monitoring Disk on iSeries

System

1.07 GA 1.0 MB. 11.Jan 2016

Environment

Release : Any UIM version

Component : UIM - DISKSTAT

OS: AS400/iSeries

Resolution

The AS400/iSeries set of probes is currently 'under sustenance' which means platform certification, security and defect fixes are carried out on an as-needed basis.

The AS400/iSeries probes will continue to be well supported with no plans for end-of-life or end-of-sale (EOL/EOS) as of right now.

iSeries versions supported.

V5R3

V5R4

V6R1

V7R1

V7R2

V7R3

 

Probes that are supported for IBM i(AS/400)/iSeries are listed below.

Additional Information

Notes on monitoring of CPU/Memory for AS400/iSeries:

If you need to monitor the CPU of a single partition on IBMi you can do it using the sysstat probe.

If you need it for the entire Power machine, you need to check the ibmvm probe, e.g., LPAR CPU, pools.
