Figure 3-96 Create Monitor Wizard
A monitor qualifier is a grouping of monitors. One can have multiple monitors to
monitor multiple programs. These multiple monitors are identified via the monitor
qualifiers. We chose to monitor Q Capture and Q Apply programs in Q
Replication using a single monitor qualifier, ITSO_QMON (reference M.5f in
Example 3-4 on page 89), entered in the Monitor qualifier field. We therefore
selected the Q Capture programs and Q Apply programs settings under Q
Replication, and clicked Next to select the alert conditions for Q Capture
programs in Figure 3-97.
Note: The Replication Alert Monitor has the schema name of ASN, which
cannot be changed. Since the Replication Alert Monitor can monitor SQL
replication as well as Q Replication, the control tables start with IBMSNAP
instead of IBMQREP.

Figure 3-97 Select alert conditions for Q Capture programs
The Q Capture Server list is empty since this is the first time the create monitor
has been invoked; therefore, candidate Q Capture Servers need to be added.
This is done by clicking the Add... button (Figure 3-97) to select the Q Capture
program and the alert conditions to be monitored, as shown in Figure 3-98.

Figure 3-98 Select Q Capture program and alert conditions
Supply information about the Q Capture Server (D8G1 reference B.7 in Table 3-1
on page 85), Q Capture schema (ITSO reference B.22 in Table 3-3 on page 88),
and check the alert conditions to monitor, such as QCAPTURE_STATUS. Some
alert conditions require additional parameters such as system name.
Click the ... button under the column Contact to specify the contact person for
each alert condition, as shown in Figure 3-99.

Figure 3-99 Select Contact or Contact Group
Since no contact information list is available, new contacts need to be created by
clicking the New Contact button in Figure 3-99, which displays Figure 3-100.
Note: Contact groups may also be created here, that are collections of
contacts that receive the same alerts.

Figure 3-100 Create Contact
Specify any name for the contact in Figure 3-100 in the Name field (reference
M.5d in Table 3-4 on page 89), and provide an e-mail address of the contact
person in the E-mail address field (reference M.5e in Table 3-4 on page 89)
where the alert message should be delivered by the Replication Alert Monitor.
The Test button provides a quick way of determining whether the mail server is
running or the address entered is correct and can be used.
Check Address is for a pager if appropriate.
Click OK to generate the script for defining the contact information specified, as
shown in Figure 3-101.
