There are existing tools to do this -- so you are not wanting to do anything new.

The techniques to develop such monitors should NOT even be considered by someone "new with mainframes" as these techniques require advanced knowledge of IBM mainframes.

So until you have 20 years or so of IBM system programming experience, and have learned all about the ASCB, JFCB, and all the other z/OS control blocks, give up on your idea of developing a new monitoring tool.
