Error description

  • RFE 36691: ITM messages are filling RKLVLOG and are not useful.
    
    The change will be to suppress the messages if the user is
    contained in a list. The list is provided by a new TEMS variable
    that the customer can modify as needed.
    
    This provides a nice compromise in that we should still be able
    to see these messages in most cases while suppressing the
    messages for "userids" that generate excessive numbers.
    
    Here are the messages at issue for the MSG2 (Operation) log =>
    
    KDSMA011   Logon successful to server SRVR01 user DSTSNS
               ip.pipe:#aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd(10111).
    KDSMA009   User DSTSNS logged off serverSRVR01.
    

Local fix

  • None presently exists, thus the RFE !
    

Problem summary

  • IBM Tivoli Monitoring "logon/logoff" messages are filling up
    RKLVLOG.
    
    
    When any IBM Tivoli Monitoring component does a logon or a
    logoff to the monitoring server, the respective KDSMA009 and
    KDSMA011 messages are recorded in MSG2/Operation log file.
    There can be use cases that result in large numbers of these
    KDSMA009 and KDSMA011 messages being recorded to MSG2/Operation
    log file.  The large volumes of KDSMA009 and KDSMA011 messages
    result in excessive growth of MSG2/Operation log file and this
    can be an undesirable effect on the log file.
    
    In order for this APAR to be properly implemented in your
    environment, a new environment variable has been added.  See the
    "Install Actions" section of the APAR conclusion for more
    details.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Install Actions:
    
    A new monitoring server environment variable was added, named
    KDS_USERS_NO_MSGLOG.  One may declare this environment variable
    and assign it a comma delimited list of User IDs that will NOT
    output KDSMA009 and KDSMA011 messages to MSG2/Operation log
    file. For example, setting the environment variable
    "KDS_USERS_NO_MSGLOG=DSTSNS,KCJ,sysadmin" would suppress output
    KDSMA009 and KDSMA011 messages to MSG2/Operation log file for
    the users specified. User IDs specified may be one or more of
    the ITM internal IDs, e.g.  KCF,DSTSNS, SRVR01, etc and/or one
    or more of the customer's defined User IDs, i.e.  sysadmin.
    
    Three important notes: (1) Default mode is message suppression
    is 'unarmed'/disabled. (2) User IDs are case-sensitive and (3)
    the Logon/Logoff text of KDSMA009/KDSMA011 messages will still
    be recorded in the monitoring server's RAS1 trace log, given
    appropriate KBB_RAS1 settings.
    
    The fix for this APAR is contained in the following maintenance
    packages:
