MQSeries as a file transfer program

By russ_love ·
We are looking for guideline numbers to determine when to use another product to do file transfers beside MQSeries (base product). We are currently saying anything less than 500 meg use MQ, greater than 500 use a product called XComm.

MQSeries as a file transfer program

by erikdr In reply to MQSeries as a file transf ...

Well we don't really have any, BUT we have other criteria for separating between MQ and other platforms like Xcom/Ftp, SQL database replication and JDBC-type access:
* Fine-grained is JDBC-type, coarse-grained deserves messaging (MQ)
* Time-critical response (two-way traffic): MQ if not transactional, JDBC-style when transactional
* Programmer-oriented application: MQ, versus configuration-oriented app: file transfer.

A file size limit where MQ, within these criteria, is NOT efficient we don't really have. As long as you are cautious with message persistency (usually not needed when you do handshake on arrival yourself) and a few other settings it can handle quite large volumes.

Hope this helps,
