I was writing a script the other day which would interrogate for certain MQ Errors in the AMQERR0x.LOG files. I originally wrote it on AIX (bash) and ported it over to Linux (bash). I was getting odd results when calculating dates based on the log entry date written to the log files. On AIX it is a 2 yr date year (mm/dd/yy)- the century and on Linux it is a 4 yr date year (mm/dd/yyyy).

Is there a way to set the MQ log date format? I find it odd that there is a difference in the way the log entry date(year) if different on the two different OS environments.

I could not find anything on this here or in Google

The date at the start of an entry is usually formatted based on locale settings - for example LC_TIME. Which may vary by environment, user and platform.

But the error log entries also include a standardised time format in the header. See example below.

And if you have the error logs in json, the timestamp is also in a standard format.

Code:

22/10/20 10:54:50 - Process(43647144.1) User(root) Program(setmqinst)
                    Host(rockall.hursley.ibm.com) Installation(Installation8)
                    VRMF(9.2.1.0)
                    Time(2020-10-22T09:54:50.641Z)
