OMEGAMON XE products and IBM Tivoli Management Services (ITMS) on z/OS Daylight Savings Time (DST) Changes

Technote (FAQ)


Question

What is needed for our OMEGAMON XE products and IBM Tivoli Management (ITM) Services on z/OS to support DST?

Answer

NOTE: If your ITMS/Engine is at version ITM 622 FP9, 623 FP5, 630 FP2 and above, the following DCF will contain fixes which will automatically re-synchronize the ITMS/Engine's clock.

- For Epilog, we recommend shutting down for one hour in the fall (going from daylight savings to standard time) to eliminate the possibility of duplicate timestamps. In the spring (from standard time to daylight savings) No action is needed.

- In classic OMEGAMON, the time is obtained directly from the system clock. No action is needed. The new time will appear automatically.

- The OMEGAMON II CUA, OMEGAVIEW, Tivoli Enterprise Management Server (TEMS), and OMEGAMON XE agents gets the time from ITMS/ENGINE (ITMS/Engine). In order to pick up the time change, you must either recycle the started task or issue the following TIME RESET modify command:

F cua_stc,TIME RESET

The RESET command would result in a message as shown below:

KLVTI002 TIVOLI ENGINE TIME RESET TO: hh:mm:ss DATE: mm/dd/yyyy

ITMS/ENGINE messages are stored in internal buffers and written out to the RKLVLOG at periodic intervals. To see the messages you may need to issue the following command after the TIME RESET.

F <address space>,FLUSH

or the command

F <address space>,ECHO


- The address spaces which execute EXEC PGM=KLV will take the RESET command, this includes hub Tivoli Enterprise Management Servers (HTEMS), the remote Tivoli Enterprise Management Servers (RTEMS), OMEGAMON XE agents, OMEGAMON CUA, OMEGAVIEW and CL/SUPERSESSION.

  1. TIME with no parameters displays the current ITMS/Engine time. This may differ from the system local time if it has been changed by the system operator since ITMS/ENGINE has started.
  2. Use "TIME" with the "RESET" option to reset ITMS/Engine DATE and TIME to the system local date and time if it has been changed by the system operator. This may be done for example, when daylight saving time starts or ends.
  3. All unexpired timers are updated to reflect the new date and time. RKLVLOG messages, table database timestamps, and NAM Accounting Facility (NAF) records will contain the new date and time. A NAF record is written to indicate the time reset event. User-written NAF programs must consider the time reset if NAF is used for accounting or billing purposes.
