  • MQ performance tuning Part 1: Cross-platform

    by Rick Christian

    It is the responsibility of the WebSphere MQ Administrator to analyze the middleware messaging architecture to make sure that messages flow through the middleware architecture as fast as possible in order to keep up with the vast amount of demographic, financial, and market data in ever-increasing frequencies that must be assimilated. This presentation will focus on techniques designed to enhance the performance of the middleware architecture across all platforms, including considerations for:

    Asynchronous messaging
    Synchronous messaging
    Client/server messaging
    Resource contention
    MQ cluster
    Application design considerations:
    Message persistence
    Message access (queue indexing)
    Message sizing
    LUW considerations
    Enqueue/dequeue considerations
    Puts to a waiting Get technique

    At 8:30am to 10:00am, Wednesday 6th June

  • MQ performance tuning Part 2: z/OS and distributed platforms

    by Rick Christian

    This presentation will focus on the skills required to tune WebSphere MQ on both the z/OS platform and the distributed platforms including considerations for:

    *Windows and Unix platform performance: CRTMQM and QM.INI
    *z/OS platform performance:
    Buffer Pools and Pagesets
    Accounting statistics

    At 10:15am to 11:15am, Wednesday 6th June

  • Tools and techniques to secure your MQ environment on z/OS

    by Rick Christian

    The security of the MQ messaging environment on the z/OS platform involves a variety of technical skills and support groups. MQ Administrators on the z/OS platform engage and interface with several support groups and are increasingly tasked with coordinating the security efforts between the diversely skilled technical groups. In this session we will examine what you need to know to increase levels of security to meet business demands, including:

    *The Message Channel Agent (MCA)
    *RACF profiles
    *Transport Layer Security (TLS) and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), including:

    At 11:30am to 12:30pm, Wednesday 6th June

  • WebSphere MQ v7.1 CHLAUTH records

    by T.Rob

    The introduction of CHLAUTH records makes WebSphere MQ v7.1 security both easier and more effective. This session will examine CHLAUTH records in detail to explain the different types and precedence rules and provide examples of how to apply them. Among the other benefits of CHLAUTH rules, it is now possible to secure WebSphere MQ clusters at the same level of granularity possible with point-to-point networks. The session will close with an example of fine-grained cluster security using CHLAUTH rules. Topics include:

    IP filtering
    User ID mapping
    Certificate mapping
    Role-based access control
    CHLAUTH precedence rules
    Fine-grained cluster security

    At 1:30pm to 3:00pm, Wednesday 6th June

  • An introduction to HA clusters on distributed platforms

    by Rick Christian

    Regardless of the size or complexity of your IT infrastructure, the requirement for 24 x 7 access to your mission critical messages can mean the difference between a thriving business or going out of business. Examine your options for Highly Available (HA) messaging solutions for distributed architectures. Get an introduction to HA cluster concepts followed by an example of setting up an HA MQ cluster using the Microsoft Cluster Server. The discussion in this session will include:

    HA cluster vs. MQ cluster
    HA cluster components
    HA cluster topology
    HA MQ cluster with Microsoft Cluster Server

    At 3:15pm to 4:45pm, Wednesday 6th June

  • HA WebSphere MQ clusters on z/OS

    by Rick Christian

    If you are unable to access your crucial business messages, then your business may be losing income. This session examines Highly Available (HA) messaging for the z/OS platform. In this session, you will learn how WebSphere MQ Queue Sharing Groups exploit the z/OS operating system’s Parallel Sysplex with the Coupling Facility to provide your organization the highest level of availability for your mission critical messages. The discussion in this session will include:

    Shared queues
    Queue sharing groups
    Coupling Facility structures
    Message persistence
    Inbound channels
    Outbound channels
    CICS support for QSG
    DB2 database interface
    Intra-group queuing
    Benefits of QSG

    At 5:00pm to 6:00pm, Wednesday 6th June
