Issue/Introduction

We recently had one of our z/OS base address space abend: SMSVSAM and we want to code an EOM rule to monitor and alert us when that happens.

However the manual says EOM rules are only valid for STCs, so may I ask is that also valid for those base z/OS address spaces like SMSVSAM etc?

 

Also, is there any best practices recommended for those base address spaces?

 

Environment

Release : 14.0

Component : OPS/MVS

Resolution

An EOM rule can be used for a base address space, such as SMSVSAM.  

We recommend setting the BROWSEEOM parameter to YES as it allows us to see if the EOM event was generated or not, and whether OPS/MVS detected it.   So while there is not a formal best practice, it would be to code an EOM rule and set BROWSEEOM to YES.
