Handling MQ events

I found it hard to find information about MQ events and what to do with them, so Ive documented my thoughts below.

Thanks to Gwydion and Morag for the many corrections!

MQ writes messages to system queues when specific activities occur, for example when a channel is made put(disabled) or a channel stops.  This allows you to have a program take these and take actions.

Ive categorised the actions into

  • When
    • Now – for example queue full – needs to be actioned today(now!)
    • Tomorrow – for example a configuration error – raise a change ticket and get it fixed
  • Who
    • Operations
    • System administrators – who define objects
    • Application programmers – responsible for application queues

Different queues are used depending on the event
