Queue Manager Errors Written to Topic

Please enhance MQ to publish its messages that it writes to the error logs (e.g. MQP1MSTR/MQP1CHIN job logs, distributed queue manager error logs, distributed FDC errors) to also a system topic. This would allow remote monitoring applications to be able to subscribe to this topic and consume these error messages.

A scaled down and summarized message would be more suitable for something large like a distributed FDC or a z/OS CSQSNAP. Basically, if the error consitutes a lot of data, keep the published version short and sweet.

    We have published various articles on how the MQ error logs can be monitored using a variety of tools. See for example

    These give opportunities for long-term storage and searching of this activity.

    We are considering various rationalisations of error log and event generation for the future, which could include turning some of the activity into publications, but the type of content for each is very different (error log is highly text-based, events not so much)

    Good idea, just why not generate an event message for it? The today can already process monitors and the redirect into a topic is also no problem.
