How to monitor AS400

I am curious if SolarWinds has any methods available for monitoring an AS400.  While I am not a huge fan of the product, I did notice that Manage Engine does support monitoring of an AS400 as can be seen HERE.  It seems like SAM could or should have a template for something like this.

We are talking to a few very large customers that are interested in having us use SolarWinds to monitor their AS400's and I would like to know what options are available or to hear if anybody else has been able to successfully do this with Orion.

Thanks in advance for any responses!

  • I'm in the same boat you are - looking to find out how SW monitor's AS400s.  I came to the conclusion that outside of service availability, there isn't much available with SW templates.  In fact, I created my own.  Its very simplistic - it just does port checking for availability.  We are going to buy a separate product (MessengerPlus) and monitor the AS400's operations outside of SolarWinds.

    It sure would be nice if SW would create a template for AS400 - perhaps some native monitoring.  This would be along the lines for Exchange Insight & SQL Insight templates.

    Unfortunately, I doubt that will happen.
