Problem Management Application on LAN NetView Fix

      Disclosed is the design and implementation of the Event
Correlation and Problem Determination (ECPD) system.  ECPD is an user
exit on LAN NetView* FIX application that provides for automatic
problem determination in IBM LAN environments.

      The LAN NetView FIX application is a component of the LAN
NetView product, which provides a set of services (including
communication and event services) for the FIX application, as well as
other applications.  Through these services, the FIX application can
receive error messages from servers and requesters in a LAN and then
evoke a set of user-definable "user exits" to process these error
messages.  The ECPD system is designed and implemented as a user exit
from FIX.

      The Figure shows the structure of the ECPD system as a user
exit from the FIX application.  The FIX application receives error
messages from the network and then passes them to each of its user
exits.  Users define user exits for the FIX application through the
Event Action Table in the FIX application.

      ECPDDRV is a driver that is evoked each time an error message
is received by the FIX application.  ECPDDRV is also a transient
process (as required by the FIX application), its functions include:
  o  Starting the RECEIVER, which is a persistent process, if it is
      not started;
  o  Passing the error messages received by the FIX application to
the
      RECEIVER.
