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.
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.
MQ Visual Edit allows users to view, manipulate and manage messages in a queue of a WebSphere MQ (formally MQSeries) queue manager and presents the data in a simplified format similar to a database utility or spreadsheet program. It is designed for application programmers, JMS developers, quality assurance testers, and production support personnel. It can run on any platform that supports Java v1.4 (or higher). It can connect to local queue managers or to any remote queue manager.
MQ Visual Browse allows users to view messages in a queue of a WebSphere MQ (formally MQSeries) queue manager and presents the data in a simplified format similar to a database utility or spreadsheet program. It is designed for application programmers, JMS developers, quality assurance testers, and production support personnel who do not need message editing capabilities. It can run on any platform that supports Java v1.4 (or higher). It can connect to local queue managers or to any remote queue manager.
MQ Batch Toolkit allows users to manipulate, monitor, and manage messages in a queue of a WebSphere MQ (formally MQSeries) queue manager from a command-line or shell scripting environment. It is designed for developers, programmers, quality assurance testers, and production support personnel who want to do backup and recovery of messages, stress testing of applications, replaying of messages, searching a queue for a text string, etc.. It can run on any platform that supports Java v1.4 (or higher). It can connect to local queue managers or to any remote queue manager.
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.
PyMQI is a Python library for working with WebSphere MQ (formerly known as MQSeries) implementing MQI and PCF protocols. It allows one to connect to queues, put, browse, get messages, and to programmatically administer MQ objects. PyMQI has been used in production environments for several years and is known to work on Linux, Windows, Solaris, AIX, and HP-UX with queue managers running on Linux, Windows, Solarix, AIX, HP-UX, and z/OS mainframe.
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.
