Activate controls to drive NTH collection


To ensure that Near Term History, NTH, is collecting data properly, some specific subsystem and/or agent configuration changes may be necessary. These should be set up via the E3270UI or TEP user interfaces.

The following changes are required for some of the MQ attribute tables.


The following tables from the MQ Agent can benefit from some extra enablement (though they will return rows even without).


The rows returned are subject to another consideration: This queue data is sampled data, and sampling only occurs as per settings on SET QUEUE parameter statement, which is configured by Config Mgr; by default, sampling like this only occurs for predefined queues. It is atypical to change this, but some customers do. Options are summarized here: IBM OMEGAMON for Messaging on z/OSopen in new window
