mq server trace steps:
Due to more time it take to run given full sequence steps because of runmqras with trace option , we split runmqras in to 2 parts to minimize over MQ recovery time .
We follow below steps pls confirm if it is ok .
1.Starting a high detail trace of everything with files that wrap at 100MB
strmqtrc -m <qmgr name> -t all -t detail -l 100
2.Checking the trace status
sh> strmqtrc -s
4.Stopping all traces in an installation
sh> endmqtrc -a
5. Collect runmqras zip without trace
runmqras -section defs,cluster -qmlist <your_qmgr_name>
*** Now we END QMGR and we Swing over MQ to another Node and follow 6 and 7 .
6.Formatting IBM MQ trace files
sh> cd /var/mqm/trace
sh> dspmqtrc AMQ*.TR?
7.Using runmqras to collect MQ traces and other data
sh> runmqras -section trace,defs,cluster -qmlist <your_qmgr_name>
1) Clean all MQ trace file under /var/mqm/trace on the qmgr side.
2) Make sure you have large space under /var/mqm/trace dir.
3) Enabling trace will bring negative performance impact. Please monitor performance after enabling trace and stop it immediately if performance is impacted much.
