Error description

  • The IBM Support tool amqspdbg is not correctly printing large
    numbers for
    totalSetSize, e.g.

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    Users who need to collect amqspdbg output by request of IBM
    Support may be affected by this problem.
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    MultiPlatform
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    The amqspdbg command displays very large values for totalSetSize
    as negative numbers.  This is caused by a combination of using a
    signed print format specifier and by storing the value as a
    32-bit number.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The IBM MQ code has been corrected so that totalSetSize is
    defined as a 64-bit number and is printed using an appropriate
    format specifier.
