Description
Bottom rule

WebSphere MQ Low Latency Messaging offers a reliable, high-speed, high-throughput transport for a broad range of messages in the front, middle, and back offices of financial markets, and for other industries with similar needs. New capabilities now available in WebSphere MQ Low Latency Messaging V2.2 include:

Low Latency Message Store feature

Users can write messages to disk at high speed for later retrieval.

  • The message store capability can be used to retrieve missed messages, log data for archival purposes, or to extend late joiner capability past the point now possible through an in-memory only cache. Message store is designed to sequentially write streaming data to disk at the high speeds typically seen in Financial Markets market data and trading systems. Messages can be sent to disk through either multicast or unicast messaging to multiple redundant end-points.
  • Data can be retrieved from the message store through message retrieval APIs. Stored data is keyed by time, so a basic retrieval is done within a timed range using timestamps. The message store also provides a plugin mechanism by which custom retrieval logic can be easily integrated to allow retrieval by sequence number based on specific message properties. In addition, the Low Latency Message Store feature adds the ability to use filters to control what is written to the message store. Filtering can be done based on topic name or message properties or XML and, FIX message content. This can allow the application for example to write only certain trades or orders that fall within defined parameters.
  • Message data reliability can be enhanced by including a checksum in the recorded data, which can be used to check that recorded data is not corrupted on the disk. This capability helps to detect or diagnose problems in recovery from abnormal termination.

Shared memory

The shared memory feature allows WebSphere MQ Low Latency Messaging instances to communicate over shared memory between processes running on a single host machine.

  • Eliminates the kernel and network stacks from the communication path to help offer ultra-high performance for applications that run on the same machine
  • Can take advantage of the latest multi-core and multi-chip server designs to offer outstanding scalability as the number of receivers and transmitters increases
  • Allows an application to mix shared memory communication and standard communication based on TCP/IP or InfiniBand in the same Reliable Multicast Messaging (RMM) or Reliable Unicast Messaging (RUM) instance
  • Has been implemented so that only minor modifications are needed to applications using existing APIs to allow them to take advantage of the new shared memory feature
  • Is supported on Linux only

Application acknowledgement of received messages on RCMS

This new mechanism allows an application to inform RCMS that a message has been fully processed by the receiving application. Without this option, acknowledgement would take place immediately upon receipt of the message by the application. This new capability gives provides greater flexibility to allow tailoring of messaging behavior to meet the needs of various applications.

Multicast by Unicast support

MBU allows a sender to deliver data simultaneously to multiple subscribed receivers over unicast. MBU can be used in the context of RCMS and in other scenarios where an application needs to deliver identical data to multiple destinations, but multicast is not a viable option. MBU is implemented at the RMM layer and is exposed to users via the RMM API. An MBU topic allows the application to define the set of receivers for that topic. The application may add and remove destinations dynamically during run-time. When a message is submitted on an MBU topic, the message is automatically sent to all the destinations which are currently defined on that topic.

Reliable unicast messaging enhancements

Enhancements to RUM include API extensions and unicast performance optimization.

RUM API extensions are designed to add capabilities currently available in RMM to RUM. These enhancements:

  • Allow a RUM instance to work with multiple receiver ports
  • Allow an application to submit a message composed of multiple buffers
  • Support asynchronous receivers
  • Support synchronous packet delivery
  • Allow the application to flush message buffers
  • Support application control over batching
  • Support receiver-side join policy
  • Support bitmap TurboFlow message filtering
  • Allow the setting of thread priority on key threads
  • Support monitoring of internal latency and statistics of major queues

A number of changes have been implemented to further improve unicast latency and throughput performance. These changes have only minor affects on the RUM interface, so in most cases applications are not affected by these changes.

The enhancements include:

  • Revised RUM receiver side threading architecture
  • The ability to set thread affinity to bind to a subset of the CPUs, which can provide significant performance benefits, particular on new multi-core hardware
  • Support for Native InfiniBand for RUM, which is designed to offer low latency and high throughput similar to the performance previously available on RMM. InfiniBand can provide advantages in scalability and reduced congestion under high message volumes. Native InfiniBand on RUM is supported on Linux only.

RCMS enhancements

  • RCMS over reliable UDP (RUDP) is designed to enable RCMS-enabled applications to work with unicast topics. This allows RCMS to work in environments where multicast traffic is not permitted. RUDP is enabled through data topics which are used by the application to send the application data, and control topics which are used internally by RCMS during failover to retrieve ordering information. Elements of RUDP include MBU and Unicast Control topics. Unicast control topics are used internally by RCMS to send information between RCMS components for failure-recovery purposes in situations when a virtual-synchrony tier is used. They are not needed when a real-synchrony tier is used.
  • RCMS Support for multi-site failover allows better control of RCMS tiers that operate across multiple sites. New capabilities include the ability to specify which member will act as tier leader, and dynamically disconnect and reconnect a tier member.

Expanded platform support

  • 64-bit zLinux support on System z9® and z10, including RMM, RUM, and RCMS support.
  • HP-UX on RMM only. RUM and RCMS are not supported at this time.
  • SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 (X86 or X86-64).
  • Microsoft Windows Server 2008 (X86 or X86-64).
  • Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6), which is supported on IPv6 compliant operating systems.
  • Sun JVM V6 support.
  • Windows development environment: Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0.
  • Linux development environment: gcc 4.1.2.

Usability enhancements

  • Logging improvements that enable unique identifiers on log messages to help improve problem determination.
  • Additional sample applications including RMM, RUM, and RCMS. These sample applications can act as starting points to help clients more quickly integrate and implement Low Latency Messaging with their applications.

Performance considerations

WebSphere MQ Low Latency Messaging is a scalable product. Performance depends on the complexity of the specific environment, volume of data traffic, and the data object size. The stated performance numbers are based on measurements using standard IBM benchmarks in a controlled environment. The actual throughput that any application will experience may vary depending upon considerations such as message size, transmission rate, hardware platform, and network configuration. Therefore, no assurance can be given that an individual application will achieve the throughput or latency stated here. Customers should conduct their own testing. For more detailed performance information, consult your IBM sales representative.

Charge metrics definitions

Processor Value Unit (PVU)

PVU is the unit of measure by which this program is licensed. PVU entitlements are based on processor families (vendors and brands). A Proof of Entitlement (PoE) must be obtained for the appropriate number of PVUs based on the level or tier of all processor cores activated and available for use by the Program on the server. Some programs allow licensing to less than the full capacity of the server's activated processor cores, sometimes referred to as sub-capacity licensing. For programs which offer sub-capacity licensing, if a server is partitioned utilizing eligible partitioning technologies, then a PoE must be obtained for the appropriate number of PVUs based on all activated processor cores available for use in each partition where the program runs or is managed by the program. Refer to the International Passport Advantage Agreement Attachment for Sub-Capacity Terms or the program's license information to determine applicable sub-capacity terms. The PVU entitlements are specific to the program and may not be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with PVU entitlements of another program.

For general overview of PVUs for processor families (vendors and brands), go to

http://www-306.ibm.com/software/lotus/passportadvantage/ pvu_licensing_for_customers.html

To calculate the exact PVU entitlements required for the program, go to

https://www-112.ibm.com/software/howtobuy/passportadvantage/ valueunitcalculator/vucalc.wss

Client Device

Client Device is the unit of measure by which this program is licensed. A Client Device is a computing device that requests the execution of a set of commands, procedures, or applications from another computer system that is typically referred to as a server. Multiple Client Devices may share access to a common server. A Client Device generally has some processing capability or is programmable to allow a user to do work. A PoE must be obtained for each Client Device accessing the program in any manner on each and every single computer or server where the program is installed.

Examples include, but are not limited to appliances, automated teller machines, cash registers, desktop computers, kiosks, notebook computers, personal digital assistant, point-of-sale terminals, and technical workstations.

Yes

Warranty

IBM warrants that when the program is used in the specified operating environment, it will conform to its specifications. The warranty applies only to the unmodified portion of the program. IBM does not warrant uninterrupted or error-free operation of the program or that IBM will correct all program defects. You are responsible for the results obtained from the use of the program.

IBM provides you with access to IBM databases containing information on known program defects, defect corrections, restrictions, and bypasses at no additional charge. Consult the IBM Software Support Handbook for further information at

http://www.ibm.com/support/handbook

IBM will maintain this information for at least one year after the original licensee acquires the program (warranty period).

Program technical support

Technical support of a program product will be available for a minimum of five years from the general availability date, as long as your Software Maintenance is in effect. This technical support allows you to obtain assistance (via telephone or electronic means) from IBM for product-specific, task-oriented questions regarding the installation and operation of the program product. Software Maintenance also provides you with access to updates, releases, and versions of the program. You will be notified, via announcement letter, of discontinuance of support with 12 months' notice. If you require additional technical support from IBM, including an extension of support beyond the discontinuance date, contact your IBM representative or IBM Business Partner. This extension may be available for a fee.

Money-back guarantee

If for any reason you are dissatisfied with the program and you are the original licensee, you may obtain a refund of the amount you paid for it, if within 30 days of your invoice date you return the program and its PoE to the party from whom you obtained it. If you downloaded the program, you may contact the party from whom you acquired it for instructions on how to obtain the refund.

For programs acquired under the IBM International Passport Advantage Agreement, this term applies only to your first acquisition of the program.

Authorization for use on home/portable computer

The program may be stored on the primary machine and another machine, provided that the program is not in active use on both machines at the same time. You may not copy and use this program on another computer without paying additional license fees.
