IBM Operations Manager for z/VM Version 1 Release 3 features a new configuration statement, DEFTCPA. This configuration statement allows Operations Manager to collect and process syslog data or file input from local or remote systems. The syslog or file data is processed in the same manner as SECUSER or OBSERVER data from a monitored console. This means that rules can be written to automatically take an action if a specified message appears in the syslog data. In addition, once this data is collected by Operations Manager, it can be viewed using the VIEWCON command, the same way console data is viewed.
