Description

WebSphere MQ for HP OpenVMS V6.0

Manageability:

  • Easier problem determination and avoidance.
    • New status information shows whether messages are being processed or are being delayed, and indicates what might be causing any delays.
    • Statistics similar to the system management facility (SMF) data for IBM z/OS® systems are written to event queues, enabling better monitoring of application and queue manager behavior. You can use this function for monitoring the required capacity of a system, giving you an indication of workloads.
    • It is easier to see important information returned from status commands because programmable command format (PCF) and MQSC commands now have a WHERE clause that filters queries. You can use this information in commands that inquire about status to see potential problems before they cause a significant outage.
  • Monitor the MQ network and change the way it is working.
    • The new DISPLAY CONN command shows which applications are connected to a queue manager and which queues they have opened.
    • The new STOP CONN command forces a disconnection from a queue manager, allowing an MQ administrator to disable a problem application.
    • New attributes for queues, queue manager channels, and cluster channels extend the range of cluster workload algorithms.
    • WebSphere MQ can track the route that a message would be expected to take through its network. New flags can request that queue managers that process the message should send back an activity report (for example, which channel, queue manager, and transmission queue have been used).
    • Event messages are generated when log files are switched, and it is now easier to automate the copying and archiving of log files. In addition, a queue manager can be made to replay copied logs without fully starting.

Standards:

  • Java Message Service (JMS) V1.1: The current version of the JMS standard is supported. The older level of interface is also included for backward compatibility.
  • Internet Protocol V6 (IPv6): WebSphere MQ now fully supports IPv6 networks. IPv6 is the latest version of the IP protocols and provides many more IP addresses than are allowed under IPv4.

Enterprise service bus:

You can use a combination of WebSphere MQ servers, WebSphere Application Server deployments, and WebSphere Message Brokers to deploy an ESB. This combined network of servers can then seamlessly exchange information across your enterprise, regardless of whether the original communication began as a JMS message from WebSphere Application Server or WebSphere MQ, or as a native message from WebSphere MQ.

Performance, capacity, and scalability:

  • Exploitation of 64-bit addressing.

    For HP OpenVMS, WebSphere MQ V6.0 queue managers are 64-bit processes only. A single set of application libraries is provided for both 32-bit and 64-bit applications. Existing 32-bit applications continue to run unchanged; newer applications might choose to take advantage of 64-bit addressing.

  • Data compression on channels.

    All channel types now support compression, which can improve network bandwidth usage and may also improve performance of encrypted SSL channels.

Usability — Cross-platform configuration tool:

An Eclipse-based configuration user interface, which runs on Microsoft Windows and Linux on x86 platforms, replaces the Windows-based MQ Explorer. It can configure WebSphere MQ on other platforms such as OpenVMS. It is extensible, with documented interfaces for additional plug-ins. Eclipse is an award-winning, open source platform for the construction of powerful software development tools and rich desktop applications.

Additional new function:

  • JMS clients can use the channel definition table and run the same channel exits as other clients.
  • The security interfaces used by setmqaut are given programmable command format (PCF) equivalents to permit remote administration.
  • Some error log entries can be suppressed or duplicates ignored.
  • Queue managers on all platforms can automatically start items such as applications, listeners, and trigger monitors.
  • Web services are supported through the integration of SOAP SupportPac™ MA0R.
  • Publish and subscribe is supported through the integration of SupportPac MA0C.

Distributed Computing Environment (DCE), provided in other WebSphere MQ products, is not supported in WebSphere MQ for HP OpenVMS V6.0.

Accessibility by people with disabilities

The following features support use by people with disabilities:

  • Operation by keyboard alone
  • Screen readers and screen magnifiers tested for use by people with visual impairment
  • Speech recognition products tested for use by people with mobility impairment
  • Optional display of audio alerts for people with hearing impairment

Section 508 of the U.S. Rehabilitation Act

WebSphere MQ for HP OpenVMS is capable as of August 13, 2008, when used in accordance with IBM's associated documentation, of satisfying the applicable requirements of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, provided that any assistive technology used with the product properly interoperates with it. A U.S. Section 508 Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT), containing details on the products accessibility compliance, can be requested on the following Web site

IPLA and Subscription and Support considerations

IPLA licenses can be transferred from one machine to another within, but not limited to an enterprise. You may aggregate the capacity for all the processors the product is operated on to achieve a more economic price. This will result in a single Proof of Entitlement (PoE). It is your responsibility to manage the distribution of Value Units within the limits of the entitlement of the product license.

Subscription and Support must cover the same capacity as the product license entitlement. Subscription and Support will be available in the country in which the agreement is made.

Product positioning

WebSphere MQ is a proven and reliable foundation for an ESB.

  • WebSphere MQ, the core of application integration, integrates many platforms. Delivering the messaging foundation for an ESB and assuring reliable message delivery, it can be used alone or combined seamlessly with WebSphere Application Server. Both WebSphere MQ and WebSphere Application Server provide messaging resources that can form the foundation for an organization's ESB, which can grow incrementally with your business needs.
  • WebSphere MQ Extended Security Edition enhances WebSphere MQ with end-to-end, application-level data protection features. It enables enterprise-wide, remote management of security polices on your MQ network and can be deployed to existing production environments without changes to existing WebSphere MQ applications.
  • WebSphere Message Broker includes a one-to-many connectivity model plus transformation, intelligent routing, and information flow modelling across multiple, disparate business systems. It also supports publications and subscriptions, including mobile clients and remote telemetry devices.
  • WebSphere MQ Everyplace™ brings the benefits of assured message delivery and rock-solid security to the failure-prone environment of mobile working.
  • WebSphere MQ Workflow offers a business process management system that enables the definition, execution, and swift change of complete business processes that span systems, applications, and people.

Product extensions, available as a download from the Internet, offer additional supported function.

The IBM market-leading WebSphere MQ software helps organizations:

  • Quickly and economically address business integration issues
  • Become more agile
  • Stay flexible
  • Maintain client orientation
  • Gain competitive position advantage

WebSphere MQ enables organizations to maximize flexibility as an integrated On Demand Business by:

  • Leveraging existing resources
  • Improving speed-to-market schedules
  • Anticipating IT changes as their business changes

Service oriented architecture and enterprise service bus

In a service oriented architecture (SOA), a connectivity layer often referred to as an ESB optimizes information distribution between service requesters and service providers. Each enterprise can develop its own unique ESB, reflecting how far it has advanced toward becoming an On Demand Business.

As key members of the WebSphere software portfolio, WebSphere MQ and WebSphere Message Broker enable you to begin deploying your ESB today.

These programs help maximize the value of your IT investment by broadening the range of environments this connectivity layer can reach, such as hardware and operating system platforms and programming models such as J2EE and .NET.

The proven delivery mechanisms of WebSphere MQ provide ESBs with a reliable underpinning for enterprise-class connectivity. WebSphere Application Server messaging resources give you a best-of-breed Java Message Service (JMS) implementation for use with J2EE-hosted applications. WebSphere MQ seamlessly extends those messaging resources to non-J2EE environments to integrate virtually anything, across more than 80 platform configurations. WebSphere Message Broker adds services such as message routing and transformation and support for a range of message distribution options and protocols to improve their flexibility and performance.

Business integration software from IBM enables you to begin reaping the benefits of SOAs and begin deploying ESBs today.

IBM can help you to grow project-by-project toward an On Demand Business.

WebSphere MQ, WebSphere Application Server, and WebSphere Message Broker play a pivotal role in creating SOAs and will continue to do so as IBM delivers enhanced capabilities to accelerate the deployment of ESBs that span the entire IT ecosystem.

Charge metrics definitions

Value Unit

A Value Unit is a pricing charge metric for program license entitlements that is based upon the quantity of a specific designated measurement used for a given program. Each program has a designated measurement. The most commonly used designated measurement is a processor core. However, for select programs, there are other designated measurements such as users or resources which may include servers, client devices, and messages. The number of Value Unit entitlements required for a program depends on how the program is deployed in your environment and must be obtained from a Value Unit table. You must obtain a PoE for the calculated number of Value Unit entitlements for your implementation. The Value Unit entitlements are specific to a program and may not be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with Value Unit entitlements of another program.

Processor (Value Unit)

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 entitlements. To calculate the number of Processor Value Unit entitlements required, refer to the Processor Value Unit table at

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