dspmqtrc (display formatted trace)

Format and display IBM MQ trace.


The dspmqtrc command is supported on UNIX and HP Integrity NonStop Server systems only. Use the dspmqtrc command to display IBM MQ formatted trace output.

The runtime TLS trace files have the names AMQ.SSL.TRC and AMQ.SSL.TRC.1. We cannot format any of the TLS trace files. The TLS trace files are binary files and, if they are transferred to IBM support by FTP, they must be transferred in binary transfer mode.
