Data Sheets

Enhanced Performance

WebSphere MQ, Version 7.0 optimizes the throughput of publish-and-subscribe messaging. This release integrates publish-and-subscribe services into the queue manager, removing the need to queue publications twice between the queue manager and the previously independent publish-and-subscribe component. By optimizing message logging for persistent publish-and-subscribe messaging, throughput can increase by up to 20%*.

JMS client applications can benefit from performance enhancements in WebSphere MQ, Version 7.0. Message read-ahead can increase nonpersistent JMS throughput by up to 300%*. JMS selector performance is also enhanced in this release by running selector matching on the server side, eliminating network latencies resulting from client-side selector matching. The performance of selectors depends heavily on the actual selector criteria, the header contents and the proportion of matching messages.

With WebSphere MQ, Version 7.0, typical JMS selector scenarios can yield throughput increases of up to 250%*. WebSphere MQ, Version 7.0 optimizes JMS message listeners by eliminating polling and using asynchronous message delivery to monitor destinations. In this release, JMS message listener throughput can be increased by up to 45%* with improvements in latency.

Java Enterprise Edition (JEE) Application Servers can take advantage of these performance enhancements to improve message throughput for message-driven beans (MDBs) that are invoked whenever messages arrive through WebSphere MQ. By eliminating polling of the messaging provider, processor utilization of Application Servers can also be reduced.
