MQ Message Replication Overview

 The MQ Message Replication v1.2.0 (MQMR) will clone messages being written (via MQPUT or MQPUT1 API calls) to an application's output queue and MQMR will write the exact same messages to 'n' target queues ('n' can be up to 100). When MQMR replicates a message both the message data and the message's MQMD structure will be cloned. This means that the fields of the MQMD structure (i.e. PutTime, MessageId, CorrelId, UserId, etc..) will be exactly the same as the original message's MQMD structure.

The MQAdmin can configure MQMR to perform message replication on any number of queues. The application messages put to each queue can be replicated and put to (up to) 100 target queues.

MQMR can clone messages being written to any MQ queue type. i.e. local, alias, remote and/or cluster queues (including transmission queues).

Existing applications do not need to be modified or updated nor is it necessary to set up Publish/Subscribe to use MQMR. MQMR is deployed and configured at the queue manager level; hence, no application changes are required.

MQMR is an MQ API Exit that operates with IBM MQ v7.0, v7.1, v7.5, v8.0 and v9.0 in Windows, Unix, IBM i (OS/400) and Linux platforms.
