Abstract

This SupportPac describes the results of performance tests made on a large cluster, containing up to 5000 simulated queue managers.

Download Description

This SupportPac describes the results of performance tests made on a large cluster, containing up to 5000 simulated queue managers. We simulated the hub and spoke configuration of queue managers typical of retail businesses in which a large number of branches at the spokes are connected directly to a head office at the hub.

In this SupportPac our aim has been to answer two basic questions:
» What do I need to consider when constructing a large cluster of queue managers?
» How many branches can my cluster support?

We were especially concerned with how to tune WebSphere MQ on Microsoft Windows in order to maximise the reliability and rate of recovery of the system, following complete failure of the network between the branches and the head office.


POSSIBLE USES
This SupportPac provides recommendations on how to tune large clusters for maximum performance and reliability, following a network outage and subsequent recovery.

SKILL LEVEL REQUIRED
The reader should have a general awareness of the Windows 2000 operating system and of WebSphere MQ in order to make best use of this SupportPac.
