I have an informational alert that will inform me when a job (AS400 job) has completed.
I'm looking for a way of alerting if the job doesn't start at all. So I was thinking a script to check, has the informational alert been received between midnight and 1am, if not, alert.
The problem I've found is that it leaves no trace when it fails to start, nothing in the logs or anywhere, so I've found myself asking the question, how to alert when nothing has happened?
Is there a way to check for the presence of an alarm, if the alarm isn't present, then alert.
Thanks in advance,
