QSYSMSG - Array rebuild start and complete messages
We have a program that monitors the QSYSMSG message queue to alert us to critical issues on our system.
When a DASD device fails with mirrored protection, the system sends CPI0949 when protection is suspended and CPI0989 when the resume is complete.
On our systems that use device parity protection (RAID), a CPPEA64 message is sent to QSYSOPR when a rebuild is started, but not to QSYSMSG. We would like to see this sent to QSYSMSG. There also is no message sent to QSYSOPR or QSYSMSG when the array rebuild is completed -- we would like to see a message when the rebuild is complete.
