Start by going to the monitoring team in your company, understanding what tools they use to monitor other components in the environment, and then going to the website of the company that makes that monitoring tool to see what they offer for MQ and WMB/IIB monitoring.

If that doesn't suite your needs, then go to your Google machine and type in "MQ Monitoring".

We use BMC's products for monitoring MQ and WMB.

And, if the cost of a single outage is the disruption of millions of dollars of business, you might want to consider what counts as 'low cost'.

If your message flows are consuming and producing MQ messages, then monitoring MQ may be sufficient, because you can indirectly determine the health of the IIB component that way.

qflex is one tool it might be worth looking at for low-cost.

Really? I find that very surprising. Post the name of the product, and confirm if the product is not compatible (unable) to monitor WMQ & IIB or if your site has simply not enabled / purchased that capability.

Ten years ago I used CA to monitor MQ. I hated it but it worked.

I've used any number of CA products. I've hated most of them to a greater or lesser degree but they all worked. Or worked as designed.

I'll assume there's a language issue here and you mean "wmb below 9.0 version only".

I'd point out (to the owners of this tool) that if the tool only supports up to WMQv6.0 (which has been out of support for a very long time) this implies their tool is either a few versions back or is out of support itself, with all the risk this implies for the business and what they're monitoring.

They should consider an upgrade urgently, which will solve your problem.

In any event who on the business side signed off on a strategy which has corporate monitoring based on this CA tool and whatever freebee solution you knock up for your bit? Business people who pay for corporate monitoring tools (and I don't believe CA gave you this tool for Xmas) tend to expect it to monitor everything.
