Error description

  • When multiple WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition (FTE)
    configurations are defined in the WebSphere MQ Explorer FTE
    plug-in, switching between them can cause delays before all FTE
    agents associated with that configuration are listed in the MQ
    Explorer - Content pane.
    
    For example, consider the situation where there are two FTE
    configurations defined in the WebSphere MQ Explorer FTE plug-in
    with names "QM1" and "QM2". Each configuration has three
    distinct agent associated with it, "AGENT1", "AGENT2" and
    "AGENT3". When steps similar to those listed below are
    followed, not all agents are displayed:
    
    1) Connect to configuration "QM1".
    2) Click on "Agents"
    3) All agents (AGENT1, AGENT2 and AGENT3) for this configuration
    are listed in the MQ Explorer - Content pane
    
    4) Connect to configuration "QM2"
    5) Click on "Agents"
    6) All agents (AGENT1, AGENT2 and AGENT3) for this configuration
    are listed in the MQ Explorer - Content pane
    
    7) Connect again to configuration "QM1"
    8) Click on "Agents"
    9) Only AGENT1 and AGENT2 is listed. "AGENT3" is missing from
    the list in the MQ Explorer - Content pane.
    
    Issuing a refresh does not cause the missing agent to be listed
    and can take minutes before the agent is again correctly listed.

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    This issue affects users of the WebSphere MQ Explorer File
    Transfer Edition plug-in who are using the plug-in to display
    multiple WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition configurations.
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    Linux on x86-64, Linux on x86, Windows
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM SUMMARY:
    There was a timing issue between the listing of WebSphere MQ
    File Transfer Edition agents in the Content view of the
    WebSphere MQ Explorer when using the File Transfer Edition (FTE)
    plug-in and the subscribing to the SYSTEM.FTE topic on the
    WebSphere MQ FTE coordination queue manager that resulted in
    some agents not being listed. Any agents affected by this timing
    window were not displayed in WebSphere MQ Explorer until there
    was a change in the agent's status, such as stopping the
    agent, that resulted in a status change from "Ready" to
    "Stopped" or vice versa.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The WebSphere MQ Explorer File Transfer Edition plug-in has been
    changed to remove the timing window so that all agents
    associated with the connected configuration are listed in the
    WebSphere MQ Explorer - Content pane.
