WMB/IIB Mustgather: problems with Web Services (HTTP, HTTPS) on Windows

Technote (troubleshooting)


You are experiencing Web Services (HTTP, HTTPS) problems with WebSphere Message Broker (WMB) or IBM Integration Bus (IIB) on Windows.
This mustgather document explains how to troubleshoot this problem by yourself, how to generate diagnostic data when the problem is happening, how to collect the available data from your system, and how to share that data with IBM support.


These instructions are for WebSphere Message Broker or IBM Integration Bus on Windows systems.

Resolving the problem

Step 1: Self-guided Troubleshooting

  1. Consider Using the Test Client in trace and debug mode.

  2. A user level trace is intended to assist users with understanding how their ESQL is processed.
    It will also show a high level view of the message flow behavior.

  3. Check for known issues:

Step 2: Collect Data

  1. mqsidc
    See: mqsidc usage instructions
    • This command line tool is only available for WMB, WMB, and IIB 9.0.
    • When running the tool, select the option for 'Broker Collector', when prompted.

  2. Project Interchange files for the problematic flow/set/ESQL/model

  3. Traces If the problem occurs during a runtime test or with the Toolkit test facility, WMB execution group traces can be used to gain a better understanding of the problem.

  4. General Broker information
    If the mqsidc tool was not run, then capture this information manually
    • Record the IBM Integration Bus or WebSphere Message Broker version, release, and maintenance level.
      This can be captured using the command 'mqsiservice -v'..
    • Record the operating system version, release, and maintenance level.
    • Record the version, release, and maintenance level of any related products and components for the problematic application.
    • Collect the local error log. On Windows, the local error log is the Windows Event viewer application log.
      See: Windows Event viewer application logs
    • Collect the console.txt

      WMB writes information to console.txt. This file is located under the Message Broker workpath.
      See: Standard System Logs

    • Output of command: mqsilist -r -d2
    • Is IIB/WMB acting as service provider or service consumer?

  • Tell us what errors you saw, where you saw them, and what time they happened
  • Let us know if you made any changes to WebSphere Message Broker or the system before the problem
  • Share any other observations which you think will help us to better understand the problem

Step 3: Submit Data to IBM
