MQ on z/os needs to show the number of uncommitted messages on queues.

Queue usage information on MQ for LUW show the number of uncommitted messages on a queue.

However, on what should be the flagship MQ product (on z/OS) it just says YES or NO.

Please keep MQ on z/OS in line with MQ on LUW and provide the number of uncommitted messages rather than just YES.

    This is a great feature that helps in troubleshooting msgs that are committed vs uncommitted. Along with this it would be great if QMGR could capture the number of expired msgs using qstatus.

    We recognize that this is a valid requirement. However it doesn't fit with our delivery plans for the next year or so.

    As a result we are declining this idea. While declined the idea can still be voted, and commented, upon. We will retain this idea on our internal backlog for future consideration.
