Controlling the WMB monitoring extension on Windows, UNIX, and z/OS platforms

Start, stop, and otherwise run the monitoring extension. Before you begin, confirm that the extension is properly installed and configured.

  • Open a command prompt and change to the qpwmb directory created when the pkg_<platform>_qpwmb.zip file was extracted, where platform is either windows, UNIX or OS390.
  • For a list of commands and parameters:
    • In Windows, enter: bin\qpwmb --help
    • In UNIX and z/OS, enter: ./bin/qpwmb.sh --help
  • To check whether or not the monitoring extension is running, run the command:
    • In Windows, enter: bin\qpwmb --status
    • In UNIX and z/OS, enter: ./bin/qpwmb.sh --status
  • Start the monitoring extension as follows:
    • In Windows, enter: bin\qpwmb --start
    • In UNIX and z/OS, enter: ./bin/qpwmb.sh --start
  • Stop the monitoring extension as follows:
    • In Windows, enter: bin\qpwmb --stop
    • In UNIX and z/OS, enter: ./bin/qpwmb.sh --stop
  • Start the monitoring extension in console mode as follows:
    • In Windows, enter: bin\qpwmb --console
    • In UNIX and z/OS, enter: ./bin/qpwmb.sh --console

Note

When the extension is started in console mode, you are in the console of the Equinox OSGi runtime the extension is running in. This is indicated by the prompt osgi>. If you are familiar with OSGi you can use the OSGi command shell to determine whether all components of the extension have been started properly. To leave the OSGi runtime and to stop the extension, enter: close
