MQ Monitoring agent: WebSphere MQ side configuration

Abstract

MQ Monitoring agent: WebSphere MQ side configuration

Body

Configuration of a working MQ agent to collect statistics from WebSphere MQ is to be done on both sides: MQ agent and WebSphere MQ itself.
This blog entry will deal with the WebSphere MQ side configuration.
A separate blog entry has been created for the configuration needed on the MQ agent side:
/support/pages/node/1084725

First of all it is useful to know something more on WebSphere MQ itself.
Here are some control commands. Among them we need to keep in mind the runmqsc command which will be used in our configuration work:
http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/wmqv7/v7r0/index.jsp?topic=%2Fcom.ibm.mq.amqzag.doc%2Ffa15550_.htm
crtmqm – To create a queue manager on WMQ.
strmqm / endmqm – To start/stop a queue manager
dspmq – To show the status of the defined queue managers
dspmqver – To display WebSphere MQ version and build information.
runmqsc – Run WebSphere MQ commands on a queue manager.

RUNMQSC allows to run commands against a queue manager.
Here is a list of few useful commands:
dis qmgr – Display properties of a specified queue manager
dis ql – Display properties of a specified local queue
alter qmgr/ql/channel – Change a specified property

Now for the configuration that we are working on, we need to enable generation of statistics from WebSphere MQ side so that MQ agent will be able to gather the needed statistics and report them to TEP.
To do this configuration we need to check what are the current values for the queue manager and then alter the queue manager itself to enable statistics generation.
