APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • The time stamps on each line of trace are incorrect. This
    happens only when using the "dspmqtrc" trace formatter from a
    WebSphere MQ 7.1 or 7.5 installation to format traces
    originating from previous versions (example : 7.0.1).
    
    This is example incorrect output from the trace header. Notice
    that the time stamp in the left-hand column is very different
    from the time stamps stored near the ends of these lines. The
    time stamps near the ends of the lines are correct.
