Overview
Bottom rule

WebSphere MQ Low Latency Messaging V2.4 delivers enhanced intelligent self management, monitoring and networking, and other new features to the high-volume, low-latency reliable messaging capabilities previously available. These new features can make WebSphere MQ Low Latency Messaging an even more attractive solution for trading firms, exchanges and other organizations that need assured delivery of high volumes of data with low latency.

Low Latency Messaging can help deliver a flexible, manageable messaging environment with a wide range of messaging quality of service options along with support for a highly-available, tiered, replicated environment.

WebSphere MQ Low Latency Messaging is a messaging transport that is highly optimized for the high-volume, low-latency requirements of Financial Markets firms. In these environments applications require extremely low (submillisecond) latency and high-message volumes (ranging from many thousands to millions of messages per second), with varying delivery styles and message qualities of service.

WebSphere MQ Low Latency Messaging can be used for high-speed delivery of market data, transactional data, reference data, and event data in or between front-, middle-, and back-office environments. Using the full IBM Messaging portfolio, WebSphere MQ Low Latency Messaging can be integrated with classic WebSphere MQ for back-office applications requiring the highest levels of assured delivery.

Although initially designed to meet the high-speed and throughput requirements of financial services firms, WebSphere MQ Low Latency Messaging is suitable for use by other industries with similar requirements.

The unique high availability capabilities of WebSphere MQ Low Latency Messaging provided by Reliable and Consistent Message Streaming (RCMS) minimize outages and downtime even when using commodity hardware.

WebSphere MQ Low Latency Messaging is ideal for organizations that require:

  • High messaging throughput and extremely low latency
  • One-to-many multicast and point-to-point unicast messaging
  • Support for User Datagram Protocol (UDP) and Transmission Control Protocol (TCP)
  • Stream failover for high availability even when using commodity hardware
  • Message traffic rate and congestion control
  • A low latency message store for lightweight persistence
  • Shared memory for inter-process communication
  • A coordination manager for simplified topic provisioning
  • Native InfiniBand support
  • 10 GbE support
  • Flexible, fine-grained message filtering
  • Robust application and network statistics monitoring for internal and external latency

WebSphere MQ Low Latency Messaging is particularly suitable for financial markets use cases, including:

  • Efficient market data distribution - Enables low latency communication to downstream applications that perform functions like trading, analytics and compliance. Congestion management software detects and actively manages congestion, offering memory buffer usage limits with notification; limits on data retransmission with notification; transmission rate limitation; and slow consumer policies.
  • Reliable trade execution - Delivers highly reliable communication to the downstream execution infrastructure without performance degradation, with high availability and flexible message filtering for complex execution routing.
  • Real-time market analytics - Offers robust message filtering to deliver relevant information to downstream applications that perform analytics and compliance.

WebSphere MQ Low Latency Messaging can be used as a key element of low latency solutions for financial firms or within other industries that require reliable, high-speed data delivery. The software is also embedded in WebSphere Front Office, a scalable, high-performance, low-latency market data delivery platform.

Description
Bottom rule

WebSphere MQ Low Latency Messaging offers a reliable, high-speed, high-throughput transport for a broad range of messages that enables extremely low latency distribution of information. WebSphere MQ Low Latency Messaging is designed to address the needs of 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 V2.4 include:

Enhanced Intelligent self-management

Intelligent self-management is offered through a topic mapping service introduced in V2.3. This service provides centralized management of topic mapping rules by automatically configuring topics transport destination details to help make it easier for developers to create applications that can take advantage of Low Latency Messaging capabilities. In this V2.4 update the topic mapping service is further enhanced with dynamic reception port provisioning providing the ability to add or remove network and shared memory reception ports dynamically. In addition the topic mapping service is enhanced to extend its mapping capabilities to topic transport protocol, shared memory and topic receive ports.

Enhanced Message Store

Assured delivery is an enhancement to the Low Latency Message Store that was announced in V2.2 (for details, refer to Software Announcement 209-120, dated May 4, 2009). This capability enables applications to confirm that messages have been written to disk or other non-volatile storage. In this V2.4 update, the message store facility is enhanced with support for late joining applications enabling these to request the replay of messages sent before joining the topics. The delivery of old and new messages is now transparent to late joining applications.

Consumabilty enhancements

This V2.4 update provides consumabilty enhancements that provide the ability to dynamically change the number of acknowledgements expected for positively acknowledged multi-cast, increase the number of topics supported, and increase the number of tiers supported per-process.

Wait-N ACK support ensures a Reliable Multicast Messaging (RMM) transmitter receives an acknowledgement (ACK) for a packet from a specified number (n) of different receivers before it can remove the packet from the streams history queue. With this V2.4 update developers now have the flexibility to dynamically adjust the number (n) of different receivers from which a given Reliable Multicast Messaging (RMM) transmitter must receive positive acknowledgement (ACK) before it will remove a packet from the stream's history queue.

Leveraged networking technologies

This V2.4 update provides expanded support for emerging networking technologies and hardware acceleration by enabling combined use of all supported transport protocols (native InfiniBand, 10GbE, traditional IP and shared memory) in a single Low Latency Messaging application instance and ability to allow a topic map to specify multiple protocols in a single instance.

Enhanced high availability

WebSphere MQ Low Latency Messaging enables highly available messaging through its Reliable and Consistent Message Streaming (RCMS) capability. RCMS provides a layer of high availability and consistent ordered delivery using the high-performance transport fabric offered by WebSphere MQ Low Latency Messaging. RCMS utilizes Reliable Multicast Messaging (RMM), which provides high delivery performance, reliability, late joiner support, congestion and traffic control.

RCMS defines the concept of a tier, which consists of a group of components (tier members) that are replicas of each other. Each replica executes the application logic as if it were the only component. RCMS connects the tier members and ensures availability in the case of a failure. The application can define the level of redundancy it wants to use; with X tier members running, up to X-1 members can fail and the application will continue to function. RCMS detects component failure and migrates the data stream to a backup member without message loss.

This V2.4 update doubles the per-process tier limit for RCMS increasing this from 5 to 10. In addition, enhancements to high availability support for the coordination manager enables it to automatically synchronize topic mapping configuration across multiple topic mappers to create a set of highly available topic mappers.

Charge metrics definitions

Processor Value Unit (PVU)

A processor core is a functional unit within a computing device that interprets and executes instructions. A processor core consists of at least an instruction control unit and one or more arithmetic or logic unit. With multicore technology, each core is considered a processor. Not all processor cores require the same number of Processor Value Unit (PVU) entitlements. To calculate the number of PVU entitlements required, refer to the PVU table on the following Web site:

http://www.ibm.com/software/lotus/passportadvantage/pvu_licensing_for _customers.html

With full capacity licensing, a PoE must be acquired for the appropriate number of PVUs based on all activated processor cores available for use on the server.

Client Device

Client Device is a unit of measure by which the Program can be licensed. A Client Device is a single user computing device or special purpose sensor or telemetry device that requests the execution of or receives for execution a set of commands, procedures, or applications from or provides data to another computer system that is typically referred to as a server or is otherwise managed by the server. Multiple Client Devices may share access to a common server. A Client Device may have some processing capability or be programmable to allow a user to do work.

Examples include, but are not limited to actuators, appliances, automated teller machines, automatic meter readers, cash registers, disk drives, desktop computers, kiosks, notebook computers, personal digital assistant, point-of-sale terminals, sensors, smart meters, tape drives, and technical workstations.

Licensee must obtain entitlements for every Client Device which runs, provides data to, uses services provided by, or otherwise accesses the program and for every other computer or server on which the Program is installed.

Limited 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. For further information, consult the IBM Software Support Handbook found 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

For clarification, note that 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 clarification, note that 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.
