12459: Automation Scenarios for a z/VM Cluster and Linux on System z Guests

Monday, February 4, 2013: 1:30 PM-2:30 PM
Franciscan D, Ballroom Level (San Francisco Hilton)
Speaker: Tracy Dean(IBM Corporation)
  • Automation Scenarios for a z/VM Cluster and Linux on System z Guests (7.6 MB)
  • As the Linux on System z environment continues to grow, the need for software and solutions to manage this environment also grows. This session will focus on automated operations, including live demos of how to:
    * Automatically take action based on messages on z/VM service machines, on Linux guest consoles, and in Linux syslog data
    * View and interact with live consoles, for both monitoring and debugging purposes
    * Monitor and manage spool file usage
    * Send alerts to a central alerting system, such as IBM Netcool/OMNIbus or other systems that accept SNMP traps
    * Send e-mails based on console messages, spool usage, etc.
    * Automatically archive logging data when a disk approaches full

    The scenarios will include considerations for a z/VM SSI cluster (using z/VM V6.2.)

    The demos will use IBM's management software for z/VM and Linux on System z, but the presentation will include requirements for implementing the scenarios with other software.

    Tracks: IT Services Delivery, Linux Systems Management, Virtualization in the Enterprise and z/VM Systems Programming
