REXX Code required for sending a mail when a job abends.

Postby bunny2 » Thu May 14, 2009 8:43 am

Hi All,
Can any one give me the REXX code which will keep a watch on jobs being run,and when an ABEND occurs it will search the sdsf output screen and extract all the information about the abended job and write it down into a dataset. The dataset is then downloaded automatically into the local pc as a word document and email is sent to the oncerned owner with the attachement.

Hello,

Please do not post the same topic multiple times. The duplicate has been deleted.

Suggest you speak with your scheduling people about defining a job that would send a notification e-mail when a job abends.
Hope this helps,

Rather than defining the required "process", you might get more possible solutions just by stating the problem:
I want to send an email when a job abends.
Most job scheduling packages have this function but I'm assuming this is not available at your site.

1) You can add a step to each job with COND=ONLY on a step to send email via SMTP, but COND=ONLY doesn't run for certain abends.

2) Creating a process to monitor the system log for abends will be quite complex.

We'll see what suggestions other may have.
