The Event Pump for z/OS is an IBM tool that enables the integration and forwarding of z/OS events from z/OS to IBM Netcool OMNIbus. The Event Pump can pass event information, plus resource status, and the severity of an event to OMNIbus. The mechanism is very similar to how OMEGAMON XE uses the EIF interface to pass alerts to OMNIbus.
There is one APAR of interest that just became available last week, OA34085. This particular APAR enables the integration of BMC Mainview alerts into the Event Pump. So the bottom line is, if you are BMc Mainview customer, and you have IBM OMNIbus for event management, you can now more easily forward alerts and events from Mainview into OMNIbus.
