Error description

  • In IBM MQ 8.0, the following error was displayed in the queue
    manager error log:
    
    The system resource RLIMIT_NOFILE is set at an unusually low
    level for WebSphere MQ.
    EXPLANATION:
    The system recource RLIMIT_NOFILE is currently set to 2000 which
    is below the usual minimum level of 10000, recommended for
    WebSphere MQ.
    ACTION:
    If possible, increase the current setting to at least 10000.
    
    This is error message AMQ5657, but its identifier (AMQ5657) was
    not written in the error log together with the message.
    
    In addition, this error is not documented in the IBM MQ 8.0
    Knowledge Center.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    Users of IBM MQ who want to look up the error message AMQ5657 in
    the Knowledge Center, or who want to search for it by its
    message identifier in the error logs.
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    MultiPlatform
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    The IBM MQ routines that write error messages to the queue
    manager error logs were being called with incorrect flags, in
    the case of AMQ5657.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The product has been corrected. The IBM MQ routines that write
    error messages are now called with correct flags. In the error
    logs the error message now appears together with its identifier
    AMQ5657. On stderr the message continues to appear without its
    identifier, which was correct.
    
    In addition, the description of the AMQ5657 error is added to
    the MQ 8.0 Knowledge Center.
