You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure. To see what permissions you need, see the "Queues" entry in the Transport Permissions topic.

You can't use the Shell to perform this task.
  1. In the console tree, click Toolbox.

  2. In the result pane, click Queue Viewer.

  3. In the action pane, click Open Tool.

  4. Navigate to View > Options to open the Queue Viewer Options dialog box. Configure the following settings:

    1. In the Refresh interval (seconds) field, enter the frequency at which Queue Viewer should update the display.

      The default auto-refresh interval is 30 seconds and can't be set for a shorter time. If you disable auto-refresh functionality by clearing the Auto-refresh screen check box on the Queue Viewer Options page, you must manually update the results that are displayed in Queue Viewer by clicking Refresh.
    2. In the Number of items to display on each page field, enter the maximum number of items to display in Queue Viewer. This number must be from 1 through 10,000. If you have more items than the limit, you will see the items in groups of the maximum number of items. For example, the following figure shows a queue with 14 messages with Queue Viewer configured to display 10 items on each page. The number of objects on the page is displayed on the upper right. At the bottom of the page, you can see the total number of items in the queue. You can use the navigation controls to see the additional items in the queue.

  5. Click OK.
