The SirMon main menu is the primary entry point in the SirMon TN3270 interface. It is accessed in any of the following ways:

  • Entering the subsystem name SIRMON at Model 204 command level.
  • Selecting the Monitor option from the RKTools main menu.
  • Typing = in the command window of any SirMon screen.
  • Typing Mon in any RKTools screen.

In RKWeb, selecting the Monitor > Performance option displays an equivalent menu.

The SirMon main menu options are described below:

1. System Overview Screen Presents the major items of interest for measuring and determining the current condition of the active, online Model 204 region. This single panel, described further in SirMon System Overview screen, presents each statistic as a rate per second and per screen (where appropriate), and as a total.

Threshold setting (SirMon threshold setting) and background task definition and initialization (SirMon background monitor) are accessed from this screen.

2. System Monitor Presents a sub-menu of monitoring screens (see SirMon System Monitor menu) that are specific to the system's overall condition and performance.
3. User Monitor Presents a sub-menu of monitoring screens (see SirMon User Monitor menu) that show specific views of all users in the system.
4. File Monitor Presents a sub-menu of monitoring screens (see SirMon File Monitor menu) that show specific views of all open files in the system.
5. Subsystem Monitor Presents a sub-menu of monitoring screens (see SirMon Subsystem Monitor menu) that show specific views of subsystems defined to the system. The second option on this submenu provides information for both active and inactive subsystems. This includes a list of defined subsystems, their running status, number of active users, procedure prefixes and access type.

Subsystems may be started and stopped from this screen.

6. MP Task Monitor Presents a sub-menu of monitoring screens (see SirMon Task Monitor menu) that show specific views of all tasks in the system. If the MP/204 feature is not installed, the task monitor screens only display information for the maintask (task 0).
7. Janus Port Monitor Presents a sub-menu of monitoring screens that show specific views of activity at Janus ports defined in the Online. For further details, see the JANUS STATUS command.

Each of the SirMon sub-menus allows up to 32 views of information within the statistics category. A small number of views come pre-formatted with SirMon.

Custom views

Users may define and save additional custom views, as described in SirMon custom screens. In addition to system-wide custom views that appear on the menus for all users, SirMon allows individual users to save a single "adhoc" view for each menu. User adhocs are accessed as menu option A on each menu (so a user's File adhoc is accessed as SIRMON 4.A), and each user's view is unique to that user.

In RKWeb, you access the custom-view definition page by selecting the Monitor > Performance > Custom option.
