HACMP Event generation

HACMP provides events, which can be used to most accurately monitor the cluster status, for example via the Tivoli Enterprise Console. Each change in the cluster status is the result of an HACMP event. Each HACMP event has an accompanying notify method that can be used to handle the kind of notification we want.

Interesting Cluster Events to monitor are:

  • node_up
  • node_down
  • network_up
  • network_down
  • join_standby
  • fail_standby
  • swap_adapter
  • config_too_long
  • event_error
You can set the notify method via:
# smitty hacmp
Cluster Configuration
Cluster Resources
Cluster Events
Change/Show Cluster Events
You can also query the ODM:
# odmget HACMPevent
