This is the last of a series of posts about new-function APARs (NFAs) on NetView V6.2.1. All are now available, as is the Service Management Suite for z/OS V1.3!
We've commented on NFAs for expanded global variables, subnode name in the TEP, CNMSCATU, and DBAUTO. The last in this set expands message CNM493I. The APAR number is OA48181.
This message logs a command driven from NetView's automation table processing. Its content is expanded to include the LABEL, ENDLABEL, or GROUP name where the automated action was triggered in the automation table. Usage of LABEL and GROUP names is described in the NetView for z/OS Automation Guide (see "IF-THEN Statement"). They can specify sections of a table that can be separately enabled or disabled.
If a command is driven from an automation statement without a LABEL, ENDLABEL, or GROUP name, then this space is used to specify the message ID that matched the statement. If an MSU, such as a hardware monitor (NPDA) alert, rather than a text message, matched the statement, this is indicated.
This additional information in message CNM493I will be particularly useful for customers with large or frequently changing automation tables, as it will simplify problem resolution, tracking of automation metrics, and optimization of automation table structure.
Thank you and feel free to e-mail...
