We're a small Notes/Domino shop and I'm our only developer, so I like to know when critical agents terminate abruptly. One solution is to set up your cell phone number as an email address (firstname.lastname@example.org, for example). This way, you receive a text message on your phone when an agent terminates as an agent exits
To do this, create a mail file that is associated with a mail-in database and create an agent that runs when new mail arrives. Send a text message to the email address of the mail-in database and give it a code or a one-word name in the body. The agent receives this text and uses it to restart or run the agent. You can also build a case statement of words or use a table in the database.
