Journal file usage monitoring (HP-XP-CA)

Hello,

I am exploring the options to monitor the Journal file usage in a XP12000 Continuous Access (Journal) replication. Has anyone tried writing any scripts using RM or PA?

Thanks in advance.

No, but shouldn't be difficult to acheive using RM. There are examples in the RM manual such as this:

# pairdisplay -g VG01 -v jnl
JID MU CTG JNLS AP U(%) Q-Marker Q-CNT D-SZ(BLK) Seq# Nnm LDEV#
001 0 2 PJNN 4 21 43216fde 30 512345 62500 2 265
002 0 2 SJNN 4 95 3459fd43 52000 512345 62538 3 270

the U(%) field shows the journal usage.

Thanks Duncan,

I am keen on something which is "automated" and can send the alerts, also which has less dependencies, like writing something with pairdisplay will have dependencies on Master and Remote HORCM instances.

I know it sounds like I am looking for a readymade solution, but not really. All I am asking is the best practices followed by the people in similar need.

Well, like I said, I've never done it myself...

Only other option I can think of is that if you use Command View XP Advanced Edition, you consider getting the XP Replication Monitor Software that monitors this amongst other replication configurations:

Thanks Aashiqui,

I am not looking for BC or CA automation, it's to monitor CA-Journal's Journal Pool utilization (hope you are familiar with CA-Journal).
