Problem summary

    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    When queue manager is ended it waits for all queue manager
    processes to end, the listener process have seen to take about 5
    minutes to terminate in some specific scenarios. In case of RDQM
    this causes a hang during fail over and the queue manager does
    not run on any of the nodes.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The MQ code has been modified to ensure the queue manager
    listener ends in a timely manner.
