here's the main chunk of code from the existing script, which is doing the job just fine

while (my($gid,$gname) = each %groups) { if ($debug >= 3) { writeLog("I","Check notification group $gna +me");} ##Create an ARRAY with each filter for each group my @gArray = getFilterGroups($gid); foreach my $fGroup (@gArray) { my %fHash = getFilters($fGroup); my $fullMatch = getEntries($fGroup); if ($debug >=3) { writeLog("I","The filter group ($fGroup) + has $fullMatch entries");} my $count = 0; while (my($slot,$value) = each %fHash) { if ($debug >=3) { writeLog("I","Checking event against + FILTER:$slot=>$value");} my $result = checkEvent($slot,$value); if ($result == 1) { if ($debug >=3) {writeLog("I","Tivoli slot and fil +ter slot information match");} $count++; if ($debug >=4) {writeLog("I","Count is at $count +--> fullMatch is $fullMatch")}; if ($count == $fullMatch) { my @memberList = getMembers($gid); foreach my $member(@memberList) { if ($debug >=2) {writeLog("I","Generating +automated notification to $member");} #notifyLog($member); notify($member); } if ($debug >= 1) { writeLog("I","inserting int +o db log");} dblog($gid); $count = 0; } } } } }

It simply loops through all the groups present in the DB and grabs the filters. It considers a match to be when all the slot/value combination's in the filter DB match with those received from the event.

Events are received from a BMC product called Impact. It has a built-in rules engine and when certain criteria are satisfied we call the PERL script.

Details of the events are passed to the script as environment variables, here's a code snippet,

my $thost = $ENV{mc_host}; my $source = $ENV{source}; my $server_hndl = $ENV{server_handle};

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
