    Accepted Solution


    There is no defined maximum number for either, rather the restriction will be from the amount of free space in the filesystem.

    Hope this helps,

    We are still facing the issue in our production system and our application does not seem to connect to MQ and gies this error in AIX 5.0, and WSMQ 6.1.

    Where does it take the free space from for the segment. How much is needed minimum. The segment seems to be full.

    Hello All,

    Any updates on this. We are creating Dynamic queues also. Does it have any problem with too many dynamic queues present and not deleted on time.

    Assisted Solution

    Each (also dynamic) queue is mapped to a file which can fill up file system without deleting the queues.
