How to make persistent the events for starting and stopping an MQ queue manager

White paper


Abstract

This techdoc provides all the necessary steps to help you monitor the queue SYSTEM.ADMIN.QMGR.EVENT to audit the start and the stop for a MQ queue manager.

Content

First, a baseline scenario is described in which when using the defaults, there is only 1 record in the SYSTEM.ADMIN.QMGR.EVENT queue, regardless of how many times you restart the queue manager.

Second, a modification is done to the SYSTEM.ADMIN.QMGR.EVENT queue to indicate that the default persistence is enabled, and thus, subsequent events from the stop/start of the queue manager will be kept in the queue.
alter ql(SYSTEM.ADMIN.QMGR.EVENT) defpsist(YES)

Caveat:
If you want to have persistent messages in the SYSTEM.ADMIN.QMGR.EVENT queue you will need to have discipline and a procedure to get and remove the messages, otherwise, the queue will eventually fill up.
