    If you want to monitor cluster sender channels (CLUSSDRA), but don't see them in the Config Manager this KA gives you some insight.


    ANSWER:

    If you don't see the channel in Config Manager, the channel was most likely not active when you did the last Synchronize in the Config Manager.
    To get that channel type monitored make sure that the channels are started,  expand in Config Manager the Agent to the folder "WebSphere MQ Objects", right click here and choose Synchronize.

    If the cluster sender channel was running you should see it in the Config Manager and you should be able to select it for monitoring.

    An other approach to monitor that channel type is to use the qpreg command on the agent, with this command line you can reigister all object you want to monitor on the agent.
    See the qpreg example more below, you need to restart qpmon after that command. For more information regarding qpreg, see the Agent & Extension Guide.

    Windows:
    qpreg "WebSphere MQ Monitor" "ComMQSoftwareWebSphereMQQueueManager!ComMQSoftwareWebSphereMQClusterSenderChannel" "QMgrName!ChannelName"

    Unix:
    qpreg 'WebSphere MQ Monitor' 'ComMQSoftwareWebSphereMQQueueManager!ComMQSoftwareWebSphereMQClusterSenderChannel' 'QMgrName!ChannelName'

    The qpreg command does help also if you use auto defined cluster sender channels, those channels are created by MQ on demand if used and with the qpreg command you can register them beforehand.
