    QUESTION:

    Why is the MainView Logger needed when running MainView SRM?


    ANSWER:

      MainView SRM uses the MainView Logger to log these items:

    ■ Event messages that the MainView SRM Automation component generates.
    The logged events are viewable via links on the Automation main menu.

    ■ Audit log records that MainView SRM facilities generate.
    The records are viewable via a link from the MainView SRM Main option menu.

    To log events and audit log records, the MainView Logger must be installed,
    customized, active, and available to the MainView SRM address space.

    NOTE:
    The MainView Logger address space should be active before the SVOS address
    space becomes active to ensure that the MainView Logger receives all of the events
    and audit log records that are generated by MainView SRM. If SVOS is activated
    after the MainView Logger address space, or if the MainView Logger address space
    is cycled while SVOS is active, the SVOS address space will establish or reestablish
    the connection to the MainView Logger automatically.
    ----

    MainView SRM events and audit log records will be logged to the main (or default)
    logspace that is defined to the MainView Logger. If you choose to create a separate
    logspace for MainView SRM events and audit log records, you must code the
    MVL_LSNAME keyword in the SMMSYSxx PARMLIB.

    For more information about the MVL_LSNAME keyword, see the MainView SRM Reference Manual.  
    For information about MainView Logger customization and usage, see the MainView Customization Reference
    and the MainView Administration Guide
