Dear MQers,

MQGem is pleased to announce the availability of QLOAD Version 9.0.2.

This version of QLOAD has added the ability to copy or move messages at a particular rate. This can be useful in the following scenarios:

  • You want to test that a server application can keep up with a particular message rate
  • You want to know what message rate a server application or channel can handle
  • You wish to inject lots of messages into your production system but don't want to do it too quickly and risk impacting running applications so you want to trickle feed them

The command to do this couldn't really be simpler. Suppose we wish to test the performance of a server application. First we put a few test messages on a source queue, such as TEST.MESSAGES. We then can tell QLOAD to copy messages from this queue to the target at 2000 messages per second for, let's say, 5 minutes, using the following command:

Code:
qload -i TEST.MESSAGES -o SERVERQ -R 2000:300


We can even determine what speed the server application can handle by letting QLOAD determine the capable speed using the command:

Code:
qload -i TEST.MESSAGES -o SERVERQ -R *:300


Similarly, suppose we have lots of messages on an over-night batch queue that we want to inject into our system but want to limit the rate to 1000 per second. We could use the following command:

Code:
qload -I BATCHQ -o SERVERQ -R 1000


The program is available for download now at http://www.mqgem.com/qload.html. As always anyone with a current licence for QLOAD can download and start using this new feature now.

If you don't have a licence and you would like to try it out then we invite you to request a no-obligation, risk free trial licence by sending an email to support@mqgem.com.

Regards,

Paul.

Wouldn't it be lovely if you could say "5m" instead of "300"...

On most of my software you can specify times in a more natural way. You can specify a refresh interval of '1 hour 5 min 30 sec' or even just '1h5m30s' for example. However, in this case, for whatever reason, I just didn't. I'll add it to the requirements for the next release.

Strange though that for 25 years everyone has been OK with specifying HBINT(300), TRIGINT(3600), KAINT(180) etc etc in the base product

That's because IBM won't bend to our will.

I'm always glad to help.

Besides, Morage needs *something* to test...
