Puppet lets you centrally manage every important aspect of your system using a cross-platform specification language that manages all the separate elements normally aggregated in different files, including users, cron jobs, and hosts, along with obviously discrete elements like packages, services, and files. Its simple declarative specification language provides powerful classing abilities for drawing out the similarities between hosts while allowing them to be as specific as necessary, and it handles dependency and prerequisite relationships between objects clearly and explicitly.
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.
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 Exquisite `df' (xdf) is a souped-up version of df(1) rewritten from scratch and focused on flexibility of field selection and output format. It offers HTML and CSV outputs, besides the traditional text-based console output. It is fit for system administrators who are tired of post-processing df(1) output through shell or Perl scripts in order to avoid broken lines or to get a simple total/summary line.
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.
