Step 3: Connect to an IBM MQ Queue Manager




To use IBM MQ Explorer to administer and monitor your IBM MQ objects, you need to connect to an IBM MQ queue manager. A queue manager is a system service that provides messaging and queuing services to applications. You can connect to a local or remote queue manager, depending on your configuration.


To connect to an IBM MQ queue manager, follow these steps:


  • In IBM MQ Explorer, right-click on the "Queue Managers" node and select "Add Remote Queue Manager".



  • Enter the name of the queue manager that you want to connect to.



  • Enter the host name or IP address of the machine where the queue manager is running.



  • Enter the port number and the channel name that the queue manager is listening on.



  • Click "Finish".



You should see the queue manager appear under the "Queue Managers" node. You can now expand it and view its objects, such as queues, topics, channels, and subscriptions.


Step 4: Browse Messages on a Queue




One of the features of IBM MQ Explorer is that you can browse messages on a queue. A queue is a data structure that stores messages in a first-in first-out (FIFO) order. You can use queues to send and receive messages between applications.


To browse messages on a queue, follow these steps:


  • In IBM MQ Explorer, expand the queue manager that you want to work with.



  • Expand the "Queues" node and select the queue that you want to browse.



  • Right-click on the queue and select "Browse Messages".



  • A new window will open showing the messages on the queue. You can view the message properties, such as ID, priority, expiry, and persistence. You can also view the message body in different formats, such as text, hex, or XML.



  • You can use the buttons on the toolbar to navigate through the messages, refresh the view, or delete messages from the queue.



Note that browsing messages on a queue does not remove them from the queue. To consume messages from a queue, you need to use an application that uses IBM MQ APIs.


Step 5: Trace Messages on a Channel




Another feature of IBM MQ Explorer is that you can trace messages on a channel. A channel is a logical connection between two queue managers or between a queue manager and an application. You can use channels to send and receive messages across different platforms and networks.


To trace messages on a channel, follow these steps:


  • In IBM MQ Explorer, expand the queue manager that you want to work with.



  • Expand the "Channels" node and select the channel that you want to trace.



  • Right-click on the channel and select "Start Channel Trace".



  • A new window will open showing the trace information for the channel. You can view the trace events, such as channel start, stop, put, get, commit, and rollback. You can also view the message properties and body for each event.



  • You can use the buttons on the toolbar to pause, resume, or stop the trace, or save the trace data to a file.



Note that tracing messages on a channel may affect the performance of the channel. To avoid this, you should only trace messages for debugging purposes and for a short period of time. e0e6b7cb5c
