Have the Queue Manager produce a read only message showing all the parameters its running with
A queue manager gets many of its characteristics from the qm.ini file. Environment variables set for the mqm ID also dictate how the Queue Manager behaves. Currently there is no way for an MQ Admin to know what all these values are with an MQ Client based tool. The MQ Admin is forced to log onto the server, or rely on a local agent to be installed on the MQ server that they then interact with.
This Request For Enhancement is to have the Queue Manager allow suitably authorized MQ Client based applications to read these attributes. A running Queue Manager knows what all the characterstics are for its logging details (type, size, number, buffer, etc). Could the Queue Manager dump all these attributes that are not available via runmqsc into a new queue (maybe SYSTEM.QM.INI.VALUES) upon start up and allow only suitably authorized apps to read the message(s) on this queue? If the messages are persistent and small, maybe keep old ones on the queue and just add a new one each time the QM restarts, to provide an Audit trail or History of what parameters this Queue manager ran with.
If the Queue Manager is aware of what environment variables are set, it would be helpful to have those values captured as well. For example, is MQS_REPORT_NOAUTH set to TRUE.
hi Sir, Currently MQ Manager doesn't have a mechanism to check with what value of MAX Channel Connection it running at? We can check qm.ini for the Max channel count specified or if no value is present in qm.ini we can assume a default value of 10...
Since WMQ now stores these configuration setting consistently across all distributed platforms. being able to retrieve these using a PCF command would be beneficial. It would allow a configuration for a QM to be checked without the MQ admin having...
