Capitalware is ready for beta testers for a new solution called: MQ Channel Throttler.
MQ Channel Throttler provides the ability to control/throttle the messages that flow over a channel. It operates with Sender, Receiver, Server, Requestor, Cluster-Sender, Cluster-Receiver, Server Connection and Client Connection channels of the WMQ queue managers.
Companies or users may have a need to restrict the number of messages or bytes flowing over a channel for particular testing scenarios. The user can control the message flow by either byte count or message count. The time value can be in either seconds or minutes. For CLNTCONN/SVRCONN channel, the user can also control the flow by MQPut, MQGet or both.
I plan on building MQ Channel Throttler for AIX, HP-UX (RISC & IA64), Solaris (SPARC & x86_64), Linux (x86, x86_64, POWER & zSeries), Windows and IBM i (OS/400). MQ Channel Throttler will support WMQ v6.0, v7.0, v7.1, v7.5 and v8.0.
There will also be a version for z/OS called: MQ Channel Throttler for z/OS. MQ Channel Throttler for z/OS will support WMQ v6.0, v7.0, v7.1 and v8.0.
Beta testing MQ Channel Throttler and MQ Channel Throttler for z/OS is absolutely free including support (no strings attached).
If you interesting in trying out either products, please send an email to email@example.com to request a trial of MQ Channel Throttler and/or MQ Channel Throttler for z/OS.
