Allow reconfiguration / tuning of Queue Manager LogFilePages after initial Queue Manager create

Update MQ to support LogFilePages changes so that a Queue Manager recreation is not required. This would enable (simpler) tuning / retuning, supporting a culture of experimentation and allowing Customers to adapt their configurations over-time. This would enable tuning in environments (e.g. productionised environments) where currently tuning may be ruled-out due to the complexity of recreating / migrating a queue manager.

    Changing the size is not practical as has already been said. The usual recommendation is simply to give the log file the maximum size (which is not really that large anyway with current storage systems), and do tuning by changing the number of active/secondary logs.

    Most other items in the queue manager are now available to update such as the log type, number of logs etc. Would the https://www.ibm.com/docs/en/ibm-mq/9.3?topic=reference-migmqlog-migrate-mq-logs not be able to support the Log File Pages updates?

    I have a number of retail customers who would like to implement this feature and it would tie in nicely with a containerised deployment approach in that if traffic loads change on the queue manager over time we can dynamically align the queue manager to changing business needs.

    This is not something we plan to implement. The cost would be very high, as it would have to cover a number of scenarios including recovery from older log files with a different size from the current setting. It would also be very difficult to manage with capabilities such as NativeHA where log sizes would need to be changed simultaneously across all replicated instances.

    Looking at a dev/ops environment wouldn't you be recreating the full environment anyway??

    Sure in a non production environment, and it would probably not be "live" until the next bounce of the queue manager.

    The only advantage for a production maintenance window would be that there may me messages on the queues...
