IBM MQ Replicated Data Queue Manager Kernel Modules

Preventive Service Planning


Abstract

The Replicated Data Queue Manager (RDQM) feature of IBM MQ Advanced relies on a kernel module to provide data replication.

Content

The Replicated Data Queue Manager (RDQM) feature of IBM MQ Advanced relies on a kernel module to provide data replication.

The kernel module is only required when the RDQM component is installed.

Each IBM MQ Continuous Delivery (CD) and Long Term Support (LTS) image includes the RDQM kernel modules for each Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) kernel supported by that image.

If you upgrade to a newer RHEL kernel, then you might need to upgrade the RDQM kernel module before you are able to use RDQM with that new RHEL kernel. Failure to upgrade the RDQM kernel module, where needed, results in a failure to start the Replicated Data Queue Managers.

This document is updated at each new LTS fix pack or CD release.

It is also updated when a new RHEL kernel is released for a version of RHEL that is supported, and indicates whether a new RDQM kernel module is required.

To get an RDQM kernel module listed on this page, either follow the Fix Central link to download the module, or install the relevant IBM MQ release.

RHEL Kernel Releases

Each RHEL release introduces a new kernel release, as documented at https://access.redhat.com/articles/3078

For example, RHEL 7.5 introduced kernel release 3.10.0-862.

There can be kernel updates within an RHEL release and some of these updates require an updated RDQM kernel module.

A typical RHEL kernel release has an identifier like this:

3.10.0-862.3.2

The extra digits, in this example “.3.2”, are referred to in this document as a subrelease. However, this is not official terminology.

Where releases and subreleases require different RDQM kernel modules, IBM provides all of the relevant RDQM kernel modules.

Kernel versions with known compatibility issues

Kernel versions listed here have been tested by IBM and are known to require a new kernel module to function correctly with IBM MQ RDQM. IBM makes compatible kernel modules available at the earliest opportunity in this situation. RDQM users are advised to defer updating to these kernel versions until updated kernel modules are available.

Latest kernel versions successfully validated by IBM
This table lists the most recent kernel version that has been validated by IBM. Earlier kernel versions (within the supported range of RHEL releases supported by the IBM MQ version) have been confirmed to be compatible unless otherwise stated.

Note: Download of interim kernel modules requires your IBM web ID to be entitled for IBM MQ. For more information about entitlement, see https://www.ibm.com/support/fixcentral/help?page=entitlementgeneral

Note 2: For RHEL 8.4 support, a co-requisite IBM MQ software update is required in addition to applying the kernel module. This update is available as an interim fix for IBM MQ 9.2.0.2 and 9.2.2 alongside the kernel module update package download from the same Fix Central link.
