An enterprise has a large number of small hardware devices which run a custom 32-bit embedded Linux. There is 64 MB memory but not all is available. We need a small footprint MQ client for this device for connection to MQ7.0 QMs running on x86 Linux servers. Can MQE be used for this purpose?

What is the distro of Linux? Is it supported by MQ Client and/or MQ Everyplace?

this is a "roll your own" Linux (from open source piece parts). no distribution. The developers seem to think that x86 Linux client would work.

I have less than 64 meg to work with. x86 Linux MQ client has a 174mb tar.gz

It could work, but it mightn't be supported by the vendor if you have any problems.

That's the installation media size, including message catalogs for lots of languages, SSL support, man pages. The disk install could possibly be honed down to few meg. The memory footprint for loading the libraries required to run a MQ client application are quite small. I don't know the exact numbers, but its likely to be less than a meg.

Look at Ch 3 of MQ Quick Beginnings for Linux V7.
