Re: message Q

Hi All,

Actually i want to clear the message Qs from the server.
With ipcs -qba i got below output.
>>ipcs -qba
IPC status from /dev/kmem as of Fri Apr 3 01:37:59 2009
T ID KEY MODE OWNER GROUP CREATOR CGROUP CBYTES QNUM QBYTES LSPID LRPID STIME RTIME CTIME
Message Queues:
q 0 0x3c1c1091 -Rrw--w--w- root root root root 0 0 16384 0 0 no-entry no-entry 2:52:29
q 1 0x3e1c1091 --rw-r--r-- root root root root 0 0 264 0 0 no-entry no-entry 2:52:29


i used ipcrm q 0 to clear message Q with id 0.

But it destoyed message Q system and data structures from the server .
Now ipcs -qba shows below output.
IPC status from /dev/kmem as of Fri Apr 3 01:41:56 2009
Message Queue facility not in system.

i wanted to remove message Qs from the system with certain ids,not whole message Q system.

Please help me on this..Quick response is highly appreciated.

The syntax is: ipcrm -q 0
(Or was that a typo?)

Re: message Q

Your ipcrm command should only have destroyed the message queue 0, not disabled the entire message queue system. This might be a kernel bug.

What is your HP-UX version? Are you up to date with patches? What is the version of the latest installed Quality Pack?

No, if you have no message queues, semaphores or memory segments, it says that facility not in system.

Well ipcs(1) is working. But removing those root message queues is going to break something.

(Yes, I already told you that. That's what the sources show.)

>Could you please tell me how message queue can be created?

Your program has to call the proper function, msgget(2).
