Pinned topic MessageCounter on queue

‏2013-03-06T08:57:06Z |
Hi all

Is there a global counter on a queue counting the number of messages that goes through the queue?
I like to probe the number each day and then take the diff to see how many messages have been processed that day.

We probe queuedepth and maxqueuedepth fine:

$ ./ --s= --channel=server --qm=mqmbj --q=mqiih.queue --port=6666 --val=
"CurrentQDepth MaxQDepth" CurrentQDepth=2970 MaxQDepth=10000

I have the following variables I can probe but none seem to give me a counternumber. Many do not work.
I connect via a client using using MQv6 v7 on linux.

Below is a list of the following keys I've probed, but none seem to give me that info:

    I suggest that you read about "queue statistics" in the WMQ Infocenter.

    There isn't a counter that goes on forever - but there is a counter, as you have in fact already found - MQIA_MSG_ENQ_COUNT - that is reset each time it is reported.

    You can view this using Reset Queue Statistics which is a command that you could issue repeatedly - remember the data is reset each time you issue the command.

    You also get the same information in a Performance Event - Queue High, Queue Low, etc. if you have those enabled.

    Alternatively, you can capture statistics about your queue which are messages emitted every interval (you define how long the interval is) and the contents of those statistics messages include PutCount and Put1Count which would give you the enqueued count. See Queue statistics message data for details of the information you get in a statistics message if you enable it.
