Cressida ReQuest for WebSphere MQ offers a set of unique functionality to enable extensive reporting, recovery, and replay functions for WebSphere MQ logs across multiple queue managers on multiple platforms. It supports linear and circular logging and can be driven from a GUI or command line interface. The recovery log can be accessed while the queue manager is running and all functions can be applied on defined 'applications', which are sets of local queues, across queue managers if neccessary. There is no application or queue manager overhead.
Cressida SynQuest for WebSphere MQ is a highly optimized, production-strength replication and synchronization tool utilizing the MQI API exit facility. It is designed to keep the content of WMQ queues on separate queue managers synchronized by performing a MirrorQ type application. SynQuest provides a solution for maintaining disaster recovery backups of queue managers in those cases where a hardware solution (i.e. mirrored disks) is impractical due to distance or associated hardware costs.
Cressida CeQuest for WebSphere MQ utilizes the standard WMQ API Exit facility to collect message related information in a JDBC compliant database and allows users to filter and analyze the collected data. It provides message tracking, reporting, accounting, compliance, and auditing for both persistent and non-persistent messages. It can also concurrently capture message data to the screen, where messages may be filtered and analyzed by authorized users.
MQ Message Encryption (MQME) is a solution that provides encryption for WebSphere MQ message data while it resides in a queue and in the MQ logs. It uses AES and offers the ability to control who accesses protected queues. This control is obtained through the use of UserID grouping, and group files are similar to the Unix /etc/group file. It also has the ability to generate and validate messages using a SHA-2 digital signature.
The Paranoid modules provide a number of routines that are intended for use in strict and taint-safe scripts. The modules cover a variety of tasks from command-line argument parsing to process and network management. All of the modules use a debug trace framework for diagnostic output that is easily used and extended for application code as well.
nnmon is a central database and a Web interface for the nmon program's data. It allows you to store and view nmon data instantly. nnmon_sender.pl is a pure Perl script. It runs the external nmon program and opens its output file for reading. Every line read from the file is sent to the nnmon_server.py program via TCP/IP socket. nnmon_server.py reads incoming data, parses it, and inserts the result to the database. nnmonweb is a PHP script that lets you view monitored systems in a tree. If there is data for a system for the last 12 hours, it will show a chart on the right hand side. The database and server components have been tested on RHEL 5.5. The client parts have also been tested on AIX 6.1 and RHEL 5.5.
