IBM MQ Qmgr option to Publish MQS events like SYSTEM.ADMIN.QMGR.EVENTs

Option to **Publish Events like those directed to SYSTEM.ADMIN.QMGR.EVENT, SYSTEM.ADMIN.CHANNEL.EVENT, etc.

Ideally, an additional option to output Events in JSON format, like the AMQERRor output in JSON, or like the event transformation used in "amqsevt" in v9.2+

Specifically some MQS QMGR Events are not Errors. Ex. an Event about crossing a high threshold or Configuration events.

Looking for events as described :

Metrics and resource usage messages *are published to $SYS/MQ/+ ( amqsrua ) , but
Not MQS QMGR or CHANNEL Events, as far as we understand.

    Thank you Mark.
    Your comment about the Streaming Queue Support was very well timed. Thank you.

    I expect we will implement the 'topic alias as a target secondary queue' ( for streaming queue support) as suggested.

    We do not think it likely that this would be implemented in any forseeable timeframe, especially as there are solutions. Redefining queues as topic aliases or using the new streaming queue support to use a topic alias as the target secondary queue are both ways in which multiple copies of the event information can be distributed. We have no plans to build alternative formats for the events directly; the amqsevt sample program is provided as a way to reformat them.
