Queue manager profile fields

This topic describes the fields that you can specify for each queue manager profile.

Note

In the following table, a local queue manager is one that is on the same MVS system as the PAS that is specified in the associated queue manager target definition.

Queue manager profile fields

Field descriptions

MVS

Proxy

Agent

Target

queue manager target name to which the profile applies

The name can contain wildcards (? or *) for MVS and PROXY queue managers. Each AGENT queue manager must have a unique profile.

+

+

+

Reply Timeout

maximum length of time, in seconds, that MainView for MQ will wait for a reply to a command

+

+

+

Connect Timeout

number of seconds MainView for MQ will wait for a TCP/IP connection with the Node Manager to be completed before canceling the request

A connect timeout can be from 5 to 180 seconds.

The default value is 30.

  

+

KeepAlives Sockets

number of sockets MainView for MQ will keep alive with the Node Manager to improve the response time

KeepAlives sockets can be from 0 to 10 sockets. The default value is 0.

Note: Setting KeepAlives Sockets above 0 leaves the connections to the Node Manager open and can greatly improve response time, but it might increase the usage of TCP resources.

  

+

Message Priority

MainView for MQ priority set for query messages to the queue manager

+

+

+

Security UserID

ID that is passed to the queue manager for security checks

The values are

  • USER - ID that is associated with the TSO session

  • PAS - ID that is associated with the BBI-SS PAS Started Task

For more information, see Passing user IDs to IBM MQ.

+

+

+

Heartbeat Interval

number of minutes between the pings that are issued by the BBI-SS PAS to the queue manager

If the queue manager does not respond to the pings, requests for data are not made to that queue manager.

If 0 is specified, no pings are issued before making data requests to the queue manager.

+

+

+

Event PUB/SUB

history of event messages

If another process is running the BMC Integrated Event Listener, MainView for MQ can subscribe to the Event Listener. The messages are nonpersistent but do not have an expiration time.

For information about subscribing to the Event Listener by using a batch job, see Subscribing to the Event Listener.

The default value is Yes.

+

  

Reply-to Queue Prefix

1- to 32-character string that is used as a prefix for reply queues that MainView for MQ creates to communicate with local queue managers

If the queue manager serves as a proxy for a remote queue manager, the prefix is also used for the reply queue for the remote queue manager. The default prefix value is BBSMVMQS.

+

  

Queue Manager Name

1- to 48-character string that specifies the name of the queue manager

Specify this parameter when the queue manager name is longer than eight characters or contains lowercase characters.

When specified, messages use the transmission queue with this name unless a remote queue manager alias is specified.

+

+

+

IP Address

IP address or host name of the node on which the Node Manager is running

  

+

Service

TCP/IP port number that is serviced by the Node Manager

  

+

Proxy Queue Manager

MVS queue manager that is used as a proxy to communicate with the remote queue manager

   

Remote Qmgr Alias

optional 1- to 48-character string that specifies the transmission queue name or queue manager alias to be used when a message is sent to the remote queue manager

If not specified, messages are sent to a transmission queue with the name of the remote queue manager; if the remote queue manager is not specified, the target name is used.

Specify a remote queue manager alias when one of the following situations occurs:

  • There is no transmission queue with the name of the remote queue manager or its associated target name.

  • You want to use a transmission queue that has a name that is different from that of the remote queue manager.

   

Local Qmgr Alias

optional 1- to 48-character string that specifies the reply to a queue manager name

When an alias is not specified, replies are directed to a transmission queue that has the name of the local queue manager.

Specify a local queue manager alias when one of the following situations occurs:

  • There is no transmission queue with the name of the local queue manager.

  • You want the reply to use a transmission queue that has a name that is different from the local queue manager.

History Collectors

whether history data is to be collected for the following objects:

  • Queue Manager (QM)

  • Buffer Pool (BP)

  • Page Set (PS)

  • Log Mgr (LM)

  • Channel (CH)

  • Queue Stats (QS)

  • DB2 (DB)

  • Coupling Facility (CF)

  • Appl Stats (AS)

  • MQMD Stats (MD)

This field allows history collection to be turned off for a queue manager. BMC does not recommend disabling history collection. If history collection is disabled, API counts change on the statistics views but are not accumulated for interval or session data.

The default value is ON.

Note:

  • For Proxy queue managers, history data is available only for queue managers and channels.

  • For Agent queue managers, history data is available only for queue managers, channels, and queue stats.
