    Sending shouts for cyclic jobs running long or not starting on time

    Michael Steffen

      There are times that some of our cyclic jobs may either run longer than normal or don’t run at all. I’ve tried various setups using Notifications before job completion or On/DO Actions to try and send a shout to the Control-M Alert Window to alert our operators when one of these situations exists. So far, nothing I’ve tried has worked. Surely there must be a way to monitor these jobs and send a shout but I can’t figure it out. I would appreciate any help I can get on this.

       

      We are running Control-M version 9.0.00.000 Fix Pack 9.0.00.500. Some jobs are cyclic based on a time interval (i.e. every hour) and some use actual set times (i.e. 9:30, 10:00, etc.). I used pre-notifications to monitor if the job doesn’t start by a particular time. I’ve tried On/Do actions to monitor if the job runs longer than a set amount of time. Various other settings were tried but none worked. We’ve set up these kinds of things for non-cyclic jobs and they work fine. Is this just something that can’t be done with cyclic jobs? I’m stumped. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
