We keep getting the following error for the websphere_mq probe "Self-Monitoring Failures for 'XXXXXXX:QUEUE.1027':
Monitor Correlation (1 of 6 failed), Data Collection (1 of 6 failed). See websphere_mq.log for more details"

What are these and can the be disabled?


UIM 9.X and earlier
websphere_mg 2.21 and ealier


The Self-Monitoring failures alarm is generated when the mentioned Queue is not able to fetch the data or data is getting null for that particular metric.
This is expected and by design.

If you would like to disable these alarms please do the following add the following key into websphere_mq via Raw Configure and navigate to the setup section: enable_self_monitoring_alarm = false

self_monitoring_alarm_severity = <Desired number>
(5-Critical, 4-Major, 3-Minor, 2-Warning, 1-Informational). Default is 4

enable_self_monitoring_alarm_aggregation = false
enable_self_monitoring_alarm_same_error_suppression = true

This will disable the self-monitoring alarms moving forward.
