Installing the WebSphere MQ on TPF monitoring extension

Before you begin

  • See the Supported Technologies section to verify the intended monitored technology is supported and that all footnote prerequisites are satisfied.
  • You have administration privileges on the Windows system.
  • The following files are on the class path:
    • com.bmc.mmpa.eaapi.jar
    • com.mqs.util.jar
    • slf4j-api-1.4.2.jar
    • slf4j-log4j12-1.4.2.jar
    • qpcapi.jar
    • qptpfwmq.jar
    • log4j-1.2.14.jar
  • The TMTM Extensible Agent is installed and available
  • JAVA_HOME is set as a system variable and points to the installation directory of Java.
    If your path contains multiple versions of Java, then the supported version must appear before any older, unsupported versions. If JAVA_HOME is modified, the system might require a restart.
  • The TPF systems are configured and running. They must have:
    • TPF 4.1 PUT 16 or higher
    • IPBridge installed and configured to communicate with the Windows system on which you are installing the TPF monitoring extension.
    • TPF Operations Server is installed and available through the IPBridge to the Windows system on which you are installing the TPF monitoring extension.
  • TrueSight Middleware and Transaction Monitor supports multiple queue managers with the same name as long as these queue managers reside on different TPF hosts. For this reason, in a multi-CPU loosely coupled environment:
    • IP Bridge is set up for any CPU using a different IP address or host name (that is, any CPU is considered a separate TPF host)
    • TPF host profiles are added due to IP Bridge set up for any CPU running the qptpfwmq --addhost command.

Note

You cannot use a configuration of a loosely coupled multi-CPU TPF system assigned a common IP address but having IP Bridge setup for any CPU on a different port.
