Automation Scenarios for a z/VM Cluster and Linux on System z Guests
Project and Program: Linux & VM
, SHARE in Anaheim 2012
As the Linux on System z environment continues to grow, the need for software and solutions to manage this environment also grows. This session will focus on automated operations, including live demos of how to: * Automatically take action based on messages on z/VM service machines, on Linux guest consoles, and in Linux syslog data * View and interact with live consoles, for both monitoring and debugging purposes * Monitor and manage spool file usage * Send alerts to a central alerting system, such as IBM Netcool/OMNIbus or other systems that accept SNMP traps * Send e-mails based on console messages, spool usage, etc. * Automatically archive logging data when a disk approaches full
The scenarios will include considerations for a z/VM SSI cluster (using z/VM V6.2.)
The demos will use IBM's management software for z/VM and Linux on System z, but the presentation will include requirements for implementing the scenarios with other software.
