Hi Thiago,

Tivoli Storage Manager stores all its information in a SQL database.

Writing your own stored procedure and using the SQLspXML Custom Sensor should get you the data you are looking for.

You can find some examples on how to retreive data from the TSM SQL database here.

Hello,

thank you very much for your KB-Post. I'm very much afraid we ourselves do not have experiences with the TSM, but with such solution, it should be able to send mails upon ending backup processes. If so, it should be possible to use the IMAP Backup Sensor. Please also see our video tutorial, explaining Backup monitoring with the IMAP sensor.

best regards.

Ok, but TSM database is a DB2 database. How can I connect to DB2 and run a query?

Hi Tiago,

You are right, the SQLspXML sensor cannot connect to a DB2 database. That would require writing a new sensor.
