TBT400 manage two alert types :
This type of alerts appears by a message sent to the message queue QSYSOPR, and memorized in the history of system (QHST).
These alerts can be :
- File processing return-codes (outgoing or incoming)
- Environment alerts (unavailable X25 line)
This type of alerts appears by a message sent to the message queue of the user responsible of the file currently in process.
These alerts are exclusively File processing return-codes.
Alerts exit Program
TBT400 gives an exit receiving a copy of all global alerts; this exit is obviously to particularize.
Alerts using E-mail and/or SMS
Since version 510 Modification 2, TBT400 using the standard possibilities of the OS/400, can send these alarms in the form of E-mail (it in complement of the previous possibilities).
Previous exit become, in such a case, no more necessary.
This relates to as well global alerts as local alerts.
These alerts, by using the services of an operator Mail2SMS (Odyssey Messaging, Graphnet for example), can be materialized in the form of SMS messages.
This alarm system is not under the exclusive use of TBT400; you can, by using standard OS/400 commands generate your own alerts.
