Error description

  • When using the MQ Explorer to administer WebSphere MQ
    Telemetry, the following problems may occur:
    
    - The WebSphere MQ Explorer generates an FFST if the WebSphere
      MQ Telemetry service is not running.
    
    - The MQ Explorer writes an FFST with Probe ID JD514000 and
      Major Errorcode MQRCCF_CHANNEL_IN_USE if an attempt is made
      to delete a WebSphere MQ Telemetry channel which is in use.
    
    - Trying to create a duplicate WebSphere MQ Telemetry channel
      results in an informational FFST being generated, with Probe
      Id JD514000 and Major Errorcode MQRCCF_CHANNEL_ALREADY_EXISTS.
    
    - The MQ Explorer fails to provide any information for the
      following fields in the WebSphere MQ Telemetry Channel Status
      page:
    
        keep alive
        msg send
        msg rcvd
    
    - When using the MQ Explorer on Linux, opening Explorer Help
      causes the Explorer to crash.

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    These issues affect users of the WebSphere MQ V7 Explorer, and
    the WebSphere MQ Explorer SupportPac (MS0T), who administer
    WebSphere MQ Telemetry.
    
    Platforms affected:
    Linux (x86),Linux (x86-64),Windows
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM SUMMARY:
    There were a number of issues here:
    
    - The MQ Explorer incorrectly wrote informational FFSTs when
    the WebSphere MQ Telemetry plug-in was being used in certain
    "user error" scenarios.
    - The data returned from WebSphere MQ Telemetry was in a format
    that could not be displayed by the MQ Explorer.
    - When the 64-bit version of the package xulrunner was present
    on Linux systems, the MQ Explorer would try to use this when
    opening help. This package was not compatible with the
    version of Eclipse being used by the MQ Explorer.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The issues mentioned above have been addressed in the following
    ways:
    
    - The MQ Explorer now only generates FFSTs if a genuine error
      has occurred when using the WebSphere MQ Telemetry plugin.
    - The WebSphere MQ Telemetry plugin for MQ Explorer has been
      changed to convert the values of "keep alive",
      "msg sent" and "msg rcvd" into a format that can be displayed
      by the user interface.
    - The MQ Explorer on Linux has been modified to load the
      correct version of the xulrunner package.
