UI Element
Description
Alternate Queue
If the event configured for monitoring is from a remote queue manager (other than the one identified in the queue manager field of the IBM WebSphere MQ Add Measurements dialog box), click Alternate Queue to enter the name of an alternate queue manager.

Note: When you add an alternate queue manager, this becomes the default queue manager for any events that you subsequently add. To return to the queue manager to which you are connected, enter that name in the Alternate Queue Manager dialog box.

Available Measurements
Object Type.Select an object type from either Channel or Queue.
Object Name. Enter a name for object you want to monitor.
Event/Attribute. Select the events and attributes you want to monitor for the selected object.
Filter System Objects. Select to enable the system objects filter.
Add Object. Enables you to add a new object name to the Object name list.
Add. Enables you to add an Event or Attribute to an object.
Remove. Enables you to remove a monitored object event or attribute from the Object name list.
Alternate Queue. Enter the name of an alternate queue manager if the event is from a remote queue manager.
Connections Information
Server. The name of the server you are monitoring.
Client Channel. Enter the name of the channel through which a client connection is made to an MQ Server.
  • Note: You can set up a specific channel on an MQ Server instance, or use the default "SYSTEM.DEF.SVRCONN" channel. If the client channel is undefined, the MQ Server will be inaccessible via client connections (the MQ Monitor will not work, as it will not be able to connect to the queue manager which it is supposed to monitor).

Queue Manager. Enter the name of the queue manager to be monitored.
  • Note: The monitor is not restricted to monitoring only the queue manager to which it is connected. You can configure multiple queue managers to write to the event queue of a central queue manager for centralized monitoring (this applies to Events only, not polled object attributes). All events contain a queue manager attribute identifying their source.

  • Note: A queue manager can only be accessed by one Controller or monitoring application at any one time.

Filter system objects
By default, only user-defined objects are displayed in the Object name list. To show all objects, clear the Filter System Objects check box. You can modify the filter settings, in the <LoadRunner root>\dat\monitors\mqseries.cfg file.
Monitored Object list
A list of monitored objects, including the object's name, events and attributes, and alternate queue manager.
