Command Line Syntax

Message Queue command line utilities are shell commands. The name of the utility is a command and its subcommands or options are arguments passed to that command. There is no need for separate commands to start or quit the utility.

All the command line utilities share the following command syntax:

utilityName [subcommand] [commandArgument] [ [-optionName [optionArgument] ] … ]

where utilityName is one of the following:

Subcommands and command-level arguments, if any, must precede all options and their arguments; the options themselves may appear in any order. All subcommands, command arguments, options, and option arguments are separated with spaces. If the value of an option argument contains a space, the entire value must be enclosed in quotation marks. (It is generally safest to enclose any attribute-value pair in quotation marks.)

The following command, which starts the default broker, is an example of a command line with no subcommand clause:


Here is a fuller example:

imqcmd destroy dst -t q -n myQueue -u admin -f -s

This command destroys a queue destination (destination type q) named myQueue. Authentication is performed on the user name admin; the command will prompt for a password. The command will be performed without prompting for confirmation (-f option) and in silent mode, without displaying any output (-s option).
