In MQ Everyplace®, trace is configured globally. This means that trace is enabled for the device, and when enabled, all C MQ Everyplace applications generate trace.
You can configure the location where you want trace files to be written.
Each application generates a unique file in the form MQEnnnnn.trc
, where "nnnnn
" is the process identifier of the application.
MQ Everyplace trace files are written in a binary format to minimize their size.
You can either send these binary trace files directly to an IBM® Service Representative to decode them or, alternatively, use the MQenativeTraceFormatter.exe
utility provided with MQ Everyplace. This utility runs on Windows®, but does not run on PocketPC. It takes the trace file as an argument and prints the decoded output to standard out. The output can be captured in a file by running a command, such as:
MQenativeTraceFormatter.exe AMQ12345.trc > AMQ12345.txt
This will decode the file AMQ12345.trc
and place the output in a file called AMQ12345.txt
