MQ Channel Monitor for Linux is a software package that is designed to gather and to display the status of MQ channels of the queue manager. MQCM displays 16 columns of channel status information. The display is automatically refreshed every 60 seconds (default value). The user can alter this refresh rate. By default, all of the channels of the queue manager that currently have a status will be displayed. The user can define filters so that only particular channels will have their status displayed. MQCM can connect to a queue manager in 3 possible ways first locally in binding mode,remotely using a Client Channel Definition Table (CCDT) and remotely using a MQ XML file.
