monitoring the sysopr message queue Published by: clbirk on 10 Nov 2014 view comments(1)

Is there something simple to monitor the sysopr message queue. We schedule some jobs to run and once in a while they will pop up an error and what we want is at that point, say to send me a text message (an email), so that we can resolve as we don't necessarily watch the message queue that much.  Anyone using something like that? Not looking for a $10,000 package that does that...

All message queues have a break handler option that you can set. Basically a "program to call" when a message is delivered. Your program then receives the message and (in your situtation) if it is an *INQ message, send it as an EMAIL to you phone's text message email address.
