Supporting mqsicacheadmin for the new java hashmap local cache

mqsicacheadmin command works only on Wxs global cache and it is not supported for the new java hashmap local cache for ACE in Containers, and there is no equivalent command/solution for that. Many customers are moving to ACE in Containers and they are good to use the new java hashmap local cache, but they are also looking for mqsicacheadmin to be supported as well, or at least having equivalent command for local cache.

    Hi Ben, you are absolutely right! clearGrid and showMapSizes options are the two only options used by my customer and seems to be relevant here ! if we can have them added then that would be great!

    Idea Review. Thank you for taking the time to raise this enhancement request. We approve of the concept of applying *some* of the impacts of the mqsicacheadmin command in the situation where the new java hashmap local cache is being used. However, it would be good to hear further input on which specific actions of mqsicacheadmin which are of interest because we would not be in favour of enabling features that are not relevant for the local usecase. So for example, the clearGrid option seems relevant, and perhaps showMapSizes ... but perhaps not those parameters which are specific to the WXS implementation or which relate to a cache spanning multiple servers such as for example placementServiceStatus, listHosts, balanceShardTypes etc.
