The MQ Channel Monitor application is a software package designed to gather and to display the status of MQ channels of the queue manager. It displays 16 columns of channel status information. The display is automatically refreshed every 60 seconds (default value). The user can alter this refresh rate. By default, all of the channels of the queue manager that currently have a status will be displayed. The user can define filters so that only particular channels will have their status displayed. MQCM can connect to a queue manager in 3 possible ways: locally in binding mode; remotely using a Client Channel Definition Table (CCDT); and remotely using an MQ XML file. MQCM supports both forms of MQ security: SSL for connecting to remote queue managers, and 3rd party security exit for connecting to remote queue managers.
The MQ File Mover application is a software package designed to move files using WebSphere MQ (aka MQSeries). MQFM processes “Action” commands, which are controlled through an MQFM Workflow XML file. The user combines a series of Action commands to create the MQFM Workflow XML file.
When a user inputs a hostname or an IP address, MQ Port Scan will scan a range of ports looking for a queue manager's MCA, using the standard (system default) channel names, in order to make a successful connection. It is very easy to use. It has the ability to search across a range of IP addresses and scan the port range for each IP address. Any time MQ Port Scan successfully connects to a queue manager, the information is written to a CSV file. The output will include the queue manager name, MQ version, channel name, hostname or an IP address, and port number.
MQWhat is a tool for documenting which MQ components are installed and active on a particular server. Since MQ component information is contained in various files and/or output by MQ programs, MQWhat is designed to collect and summarize the MQ information and present the information to the user's screen in a concise manner.
The Message Multiplexer (MMX) application will get a message from a WebSphere MQ queue and output it to one or more queues. Context information is maintained across the message put(s). MMX can move messages from a single source queue to (up to) 99 target queues. Messages put to each target queue are an exact replicate of the original message from the source queue (including the message's MQMD). MMX performs each MQGET and the subsequent "n" MQPUT(s) under a Unit of Work (UOW), so that message integrity is kept.
The Message Router (MRTR) application will move a message from a central WebSphere MQ queue to a specific application WebSphere MQ queue. The destination queue that the message will be placed into will be based on a keyword in the message. Context information is maintained. MRTR will look in the message for a Start Keyword and an End Keyword. The value between these two keywords is the Keyword Value (inifile Token). MRTR will search its ini file for that particular Keyword Value. The field value associated with the looked-up keyword value is the destination queue name. MRTR performs each MQGET and the subsequent MQPUT under a Unit of Work (UOW) so that message integrity is kept.
Universal File Mover (UFM) manages the transfer of files. The user combines a series of Action commands to create the UFM Workflow XML file. These Action commands define which actions are to be taken, the order of the actions, and how errors are to be handled. UFM processes the Action commands as per the UFM Workflow XML file. UFM currently contains 40 Action commands. These action commands fall into five categories: WebSphere MQ Actions, Network Actions, File Actions, Control Actions, and Other Actions. UFM can transfer files in one of five ways, using WebSphere MQ, FTP, SFTP, SCP, or HTTP.
