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.
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.
MQ Channel Auto Creation Manager (MQCACM) is an MQ Channel Auto-Definition (MQ CHAD) exit which allows a company to control and restrict incoming connection requests to auto-create a channel. MQCACM is invoked when a request is received to start an undefined Receiver, Server-Connection, Cluster-Receiver, or Cluster-Sender channel. MQCACM can modify or clear the supplied default channel definition values for an instance of the channel, so there is no exit incompatibility (cross-platform or otherwise).
