Message Queue uses a broker to route and deliver messages. (To scale the Message Queue service, brokers can be clustered.) The imqbrokerd command starts a broker.
On the command line, change to the MessageQueue-base/bin directory.
Start the Message Queue broker:
Verify that the broker process is running. For example:
Solaris OS and HP-UX: /usr/bin/ps -ef | grep imqbrokerd
Linux: /bin/ps -ef | grep imqbrokerd
When you stop a running broker, you are prompted for user admin user name and password.
Solaris OS: /usr/bin/imqcmd shutdown bkr [ -b hostname:port ]
Linux and HP-UX: /opt/sun/mq/bin/imqcmd shutdown bkr [ -b hostname:port ]
