The Display  Message Count command  displays a  list of message  queues
and  the  number of  messages  in  each.   By  default, message  queues
without any messages are bypassed.

You  must have *ALLOBJ special authority  to use a library qualifier of

A typical command would be:

             DSPMSGCNT     MSGQ(*ALL/*ALL)

A listing  would appear with  one line  for each message  queue on  the
system that has at least one message.

DSPMSGCNT escape messages you can monitor for

None.  Escape messages from based on functions will be re-sent.

DSPMSGCNT Command parameters                          *CMD

   MSGQ          The  qualified  name of  the  message  queue(s) to  be
                 listed.    A specific  name,  a generic  name,  or the
                 special value *ALL  may be  used.   The library  value
                 defaults  to  *ALL.    A specific  library,  *LIBL  or
                 *CURLIB may also be used.

   BYPEMPTY      A  *YES/*NO   parameter  for  whether  to  bypass  the
                 message queues that have 0 messages.

                 *YES is the default to  bypass those with 0  messages.

                 *NO may be entered to list all message queues.

   OUTPUT        How  to output  the  results.   *  is the  default  to
                 display  the spooled  file if  the command  is entered
                 interactively.   If  the display is  ended with F3/F12
                 or the Enter  key, the spooled  file is deleted  after
                 it  is displayed.   To  retain the  spooled  file, you
                 may  use the the System  Request 'Cancel' function and
                 the spooled file will exist in a HLD status.

                 If the  command  is  entered  in batch  or  *PRINT  is
                 specified, the  spooled file  is output  and retained.
