Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    Users expecting removal of expired messages from an MQ queue
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    MultiPlatform
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    Expired messages are not discarded until a browse or non-browse
    get is issued on them. The internal queue manager expirer task
    should have removed the messages either after the default
    interval of 300 seconds or after the interval specified in the
    ExpiryInterval parameter under the TuningParameters stanza in
    the qm.ini file.
    
    The expirer task was running at the right intervals however an
    error encountered during the processing stopped the expiration
    of messages from the queue.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The queue manager logic has been updated to prevent the task
    being disrupted by this issue.
