IBM Integration Bus (Message Broker) Insight Pack

Posted: September 29, 2015 Modified: October 9, 2015


The IBM Integration Bus (Message Broker) Insight Pack facilitates data ingestion and metadata searches of the IBM Integration Bus (Message Broker) logs files in IBM Operations Analytics – Log Analysis to enable faster problem identification.

Insight Pack Message Broker Dashboard

The Insight Pack supports searching and indexing of the following:

  • console logs

– UNIX/Linux: /var/mqsi/components/broker_name/execution_group_uuid\console.txt

– Windows: workpath\components\broker_name\execution_group_uuid\console.txt

where workpath is the Message Broker defined working directory.

The console.txt log file includes information about the Broker ID, messages from the Message Broker, log record time stamps, Universally Unique ID for IBM Integration Bus objects, and Java exceptions.

  • Syslog

– UNIX/Linux: The syslog is the local error log.

The configuration of your UNIX/Linux system determines where the syslog messages are sent.

The Insight Pack can be installed with IBM Operations Analytics – Log Analysis or higher.
