Hello,

Writing this post to have suggestions on how can I further tune my design with regards to throughput and performance

1-A cluster setup with 5 Queue Managers. 2 Full Repositories. 3 Partial Repositories. All communication within cluster is TLS1.2 mutual authentication enabled.

2-Among the 3 partial repositories, 1 is acting as a Gateway where all the applications connects and issue MQ PUT calls to Alias Queues.The target Queue of Alias Queues are created on remaining 2 Partial repositories.

3-Consuming Applications connect to the 2 Partial Repositories and perform MQ GET from both.All communication with applications is also TLS1.2 protected.

5-I am looking at quite a huge incoming load in coming months ~8-10 Million records per business day i.e 8-10 Million records in 10 business hrs(approx 9 AM to 7 PM)

6- We are running MQ on Physical servers with 8 cores and 32 GB RAM.All are persistent messages and average message size is ~15KB

7- I am a bit concerned on MQ's processing capability because of load. Since all the inbound transactions land on the Gateway Queue manager and get Load balanced to remaining 2 Partial repositories, is it possible that the CLUSSDR Channels can take more time to process the load to 2 downstream partial repositories for MQ GET and there would be frequent pileups on Gateway Queue Manager's System Cluster Transmit Queue ? Is there any data available that can be referred to see how a Queue Manager running on x core handles y Million transactions over cluster channels.

Also, any suggestions that can improve the throughput (adding more partial repositories for MQ GET is one option I could think of) Or would having separate transmission queues(DEFCLXQ(CHANNEL)) for 2 downstream Queue Managers be of any use instead of common System.Cluster.Transmit.Queue

Have you created a baseline? What performance does your baseline show? Is it sufficient to cover peak traffic? Do you have a specific SLA?

Most of the messaging is asynchronous. There are a couple of integrations where the SLA comes into picture (SLA of 60 secs with End to end journey. There are other application components involved as well which push the message to MQ or which GET from MQ)

Regarding the baseline - A similar environment running on a different infrastructure has the QTIME details on the SCTQ of G/W Queue Manager as :

QUEUE(SYSTEM.CLUSTER.TRANSMIT.QUEUE) TYPE(QUEUE)
CURDEPTH(0) IPPROCS(2)
LGETDATE(<>) LGETTIME(<>)
LPUTDATE(<>) LPUTTIME(<>)
MEDIALOG( ) MONQ(LOW)
MSGAGE(0) OPPROCS(7)
QTIME(16442, 14809) UNCOM(NO)

This infrastructure processes around 1.5-2 Million transactions / day (business hrs) and we have not received any issues from any of the applications around the SLA of transactions being processed

The infrastructure which I am building now has almost 4 times the load with same design.

Hi Dexter. You suggest 277 TPS peak, which is well within what MQ can handle, given sufficient resources. Is the consumer app (2 instances) capable of processing this volume of workload? As already mentioned, you should perform a volume test in your equivalent non-production environment. This will reveal the bottlenecks and confirm your expectations as you keep pushing it higher.

Thanks gbaddeley & fjb_saper.

Yes, the consuming apps are capable enough to handle this load. The incoming load would be diverted to different queues and different application would connect to dedicated queue for consumption of the Load. From the MQ Get perspective I am pretty comfortable. As suggested, I would perform a Load Test as well.

My worry was just about the movement of the messages from Gateway Queue manager to underlying 2 partial repositories for MQ GET. Will that Queue Manager be able to transfer this load across to partial repositories without any delays over TLS enabled clustered channels. gbaddeley's response gives me some confidence though (these 5 queue managers are running across 2 servers each having 8 core - seems reasonable resources). BTW is the QTIME [QTIME(16442, 14809) UNCOM(NO)] normal or is it on the high side . Any insights based on experience ?

If you are worried about peak throughput, maybe you should build overlapping clusters. One for high speed messages, and one for slower speed messages.
This way, if you have a big message and you send it via the slow speed cluster, it won't affect the high speed part.
