- Delivering 24/7 monitoring of MQ processes to improve business efficiency
Key business benefits include ensuring the flow of data is not disrupted to minimise the business risk, saving IT resources by eliminating the need for manual checking and reducing operational costs.
The new solution raises alerts whenever a threshold is breached, detects 'bottle necks' and identifies any issues which potentially could prevent data from reaching its required destination.
It monitors the seven key components of IBM WebSphere: MQ Queue Manager, MQ Listeners, MQ Channels, MQ Queues, MQ Services, MQ Cluster Manager Status and MQ Events.
The software will continuously and automatically monitor essential MQ processes, negating the need for experienced IT staff to manually check statuses of the critical elements of the WebSphere application server. It runs every 60 seconds by default, but can be configured to suit operational requirements in order to check specific rule-based criteria against current WebSphere MQ values before performing pre-defined actions.
MQ Manager delivers fault management processes by proactively checking for impending problems. This will trigger alarm notifications and appropriate actions as well as gather performance data for planning, analysis and reporting problems.
MQ Manager can be used as a stand-alone product or in conjunction with any of the Halcyon Monitoring Suites and shares common features such as calendars, escalation procedures and authorities used by existing Halcyon products. It is supplied with best practice example rules that will monitor MQ regardless of the destination platform, saving considerable time for management and configuration.
"MQ Manager is an intelligent product which comes with a unique web-browser graphical user interface that will enable IT teams to remotely monitor via a smartphone or tablet. It is shipped with the Halcyon Enterprise Console so that IT teams can receive and rapidly respond to issues wherever they are located before they escalate and impact the business," commented
MQ Manager has been designed to be easy to use and low maintenance in terms of administration as it doesn't require scripting or specialist knowledge.
This new solution is available as a stand-alone option and it also integrates with Halcyon's IBM i monitoring suites, levels 1-4. Halcyon MQ Manager is immediately available to download; for more information visit: http://www.halcyonsoftware.com/MQ
