Option to api trace Websphere MQ activities at the channel and at the queue level

First of all, let me tell you that I voted for the similar RFE submitted in December (second vote is mine). I think there is no reason not to implement it for all types of channels as well as for queues. Additional switches for strmqtrc could be provided for -t api switch only.

    Extensions to the Application Activity Trace have already been released for the MQ Appliance, using a pub/sub model to specify which queues/channels should be reported on. For example, using a topic such as $SYS/MQ/INFO/QMGR//ActivityTrace//

    We would hope to extend that same approach to other platforms in future.
