Monitoring IBM MQ



Hi, I am monitoring a series of components on a mission critical process. One of these components is a connection to an external company using IBM MQ. I need to monitor the availability of this queue manager. How can it be done? The server of this third party company has no available ping.

Dear Jose,

there is no build-in sensor for this. As long as you can connect to that device using an IP, you could try to develop your own script solution which is then putting its data into PRTG using one of its custom sensors.

These include the Exe/Script sensor to run an executable on that machine (requires to install a remote probe there), the SSH Script sensor in case the device offers an SSH interface, or the HTTP Push Data sensor. This means to run a script locally and using HTTP Push to communicate to a sensor located on a PRTG probe.
