Fault Analyzer notification user exit
Example A-1 contains the REXX code used by Fault Analyzer to send an e-mail
notification to an application programmer when a production batch job abends.
Example: A-1 Fault Analyzer notification user exit RWAKUP3AM
/* Rexx */
/**********************************************************************/
/* Exec: WakUp3AM */
/* Function: Send an e-mail to notify programmer of application abend */
/* History: 06/15/2001 - LMK - Created */
/* 07/09/2001 - LMK - Modified to use DEST parm of IDIALLOC */
/**********************************************************************/
/* */
/* This exit can optionally be used with IBM Fault Analyzer for */
/* OS/390 to notify application developers of a production batch */
/* abend via e-mail. */
/* */
/* On entry, two stems are provided: */
/* - ENV */
/* - NFY */
/* Both of these data areas are described in the User’s Guide. */
/* */
/* To use this exit, the name of the EXEC (in this example, */
/* WAKUP3AM is used, but this can be any name) must be specified */
/* in an EXITS option as follows: */
/* */
/* EXITS(NOTIFY(REXX((WAKUP3AM))) */
/* */
/* For the exit to be invoked by Fault Analyzer, it must be made */
/* available via the IDIEXEC DDname: */
/* */
/* IDIEXEC(IDI.REXX) */
/* */
/**********************************************************************/
/* Processing:
If a batch job abends on any system other than System A, then:
- Obtain all of the system-level variables and formulate a message
- Get the application ID (3rd field in accounting info)
- Read the Contact list; make sure it is sorted; ignore any comments
- Look up the application and find the person’s name and e-mail id
- Use SMTP to send the message to his/her text pager

this exit to work.
