Ability to see WebSphere MQ average message size

Our MQ Admins are looking for "average message size." We currently have many agents where we see interactions with mq, but we don't have agents on MQ itself. I don't believe I've seen anything that would show this metric. There's so much to AppMon that I don't know, I just wanted to check in to see if I'm missing anything. Is there a way I can see message sizes? Are there any plugins or agents (that maybe we don't own) that would provide it?

Thanks so much!!!

Hello Melissa,

You can see the size of the transferred message with the WebSphere MQ (MQSeries) Sensor.

The captured messages are aggregated and can be displayed in the Messaging dashlet e.g.

  • Destination: the name of the queue where the message is sent to or received from.
  • queueManager: the name of the Queue-Manager.
  • transmissionType: whether the message was sent or received.

Regards,

Babar
