Error description

  • The Agent properties traceSize and traceFiles, are not being

    The default values (5 files with size of 20 MB) are used
    instead of those passed in by the configured values.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    This issue affects users of the WebSphere MQ File Transfer
    Edition Adapter within Sterling File Gateway when utilising
    the Sterling B2B Integrator to transfer files to WebSphere MQ
    File Transfer Edition.
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    MultiPlatform
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM SUMMARY:
    The default values for the WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition
    Agent properties "traceFiles" and traceSize" were always used,
    regardless of the values configured by the user. This was
    because the user configured property values were not passed to
    the tracing routines.
    
    The default value for the "traceFile" property is 5 and the
    default value for "traceSize" is 20.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition Embedded Agent within
    Sterling File Gateway has been updated so that the user
    configured values for the "traceFiles" and traceSize" agent
    properties are passed to the tracing routines and used in
    preference over the default values.
