Description:

This Monitoring ZenPack provides IBM Websphere MQ-based monitoring using utilities installed on the remote MQ servers.

 

We have prepared a ZenPack to monitor IBM MQ channel(s) status and performance monitoring. This ZenPack uses a remote agent (packed inside the ZenPack) which is a HTTP daemon service that would use IBM MQ Client tools to collect metrics. A remote agent would be configured to use a specific port; made to expose the monitoring page through basic-auth security.

 

The whole ZenPack is built on Python (2.4); and start up service are included for Linux platform.
