Even though the DR4i product has only just been released we have our first set up upgrades under development as a result of customer requests.
The requests came after a couple of demo’s of the product to some prospective customers, they liked the monitoring screens but asked for more information about the Remote Journal environment such as was the RJ link active, how many receivers were online on the target which may require clean up and what space was being consumed by those receivers.
The following screen shows what we have come up with, it required some changes to the Service program shipped with the product plus some changes to the PHP code. The Service program and updates to the PHP code will be shipped as part of the next PTF but early testers can get a copy earlier if required.
You will notice we have also set the background color for the relevant information where the status is not as it should be such as *INACTVE or you have errors which have yet to be cleared up etc. RED says its a problem while YELLOW lets you know you should take a closer look to find out what is going on.
We have also been asked to look at how we can add control features to the monitoring screens such as being able to start an *INACTIVE process or *RESUME a *SUSPENDED process, all of this will be coming in later updates or releases but for now the main aim of the PHP interface is to supply a simple monitoring facility which gives you all the information you need about the replication process.
If you would like to see a demo of the product or discuss if its the right solution for you, lets us know we will be glad to spend sometime going over what our products do and what you can use them for.
Also, if you are interested in how we run PHP pages on a Linux webserver with the EasyCom server running on the IBM i for serving the information let us know, this is something we feel is great way to use PHP to address IBM i objects and data.
