Error description

  • When the "Max Data Bytes Displayed" field in the V7 MQ Explorer
    preferences is increased beyond 1024 bytes (say 2000 bytes) and
    a message with size greater than 1024 bytes is browsed, only
    1024 bytes of message data gets displayed in the "Message
    Properties" window.

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    All WMQ V7 Explorer users
    
    Platforms affected:

    Linux (zSeries),Windows
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM SUMMARY:
    The value of "Max Data Bytes Displayed" field in explorer
    preferences was not being considered while browsing the message.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The WMQ V7 explorer code has been modified to take into account
    "Max Data Bytes Displayed" field in the MQ Explorer preferences
    while browsing the message from a queue.
    
    However, new limits have been set on "Max Data Bytes Displayed"
    and "Max Messages Browsed" fields as a precautionary measure to
    prevent performance related issues.
    
    Under this apar, the value of "Max Data Bytes Displayed" has
    been limited to 16384 bytes (default is 1000 bytes) and "Max
    Messages Browsed" has been limited to 5000 messages (default is
    500 messages).
    
    Along with the above changes, the default message scheme has
    been updated to exclude Message data bytes. If users intend to
    have their own message schemes which contain the ' Message data
    bytes' property, then  they should consider removing it if they
    are dealing with many large messages because it could cause
    performance implications.  Moreover, the byte data can easily be
    displayed by looking at the message properties window.
