MQ Distributed Queueing setup/Point-TO-Point setup

IBM MQ allows independent and potentially non-concurrent applications on a distributed system to securely communicate with each other, using messages.
It supports 2 tyeps of setup’s . 1 is point to point 2nd is publish- Subscribe messaging .

Point-To-Point Setup/Distributed Queueing Setup

Communication between 2 QMGR’s happened using send and receive data is called point to point setup .This is also called Distributed Queueing.
We can setup Point-To-Point Setup in 2 ways .
1.Standalone setup
2.Cluster Setup

publish–subscribe setup

Publish–subscribe is a messaging pattern where senders of messages, called publishers, do not program the messages to be sent directly to specific receivers, called subscribers, but instead categorize published messages into classes without knowledge of which subscribers, if any, there may be. Similarly, subscribers express interest in one or more classes and only receive messages that are of interest, without knowledge of which publishers, if any, there are.

We will setup Point-To-Point setup with 2 QMGR’s where both side have a application which will send and receive message . Let us say one application will send request message to another application and other application will process the message and return response back to the requested application

Above diagram show required MQ objects to create for message flow on both the ways.

MQ commands for the above setup is show in the below table .

Now all the channels are running and also queue are available . Let us test message on both the ways using amqsget/amqsput programs .

QM1 to QM2 Message flow

QM2 to QM1 Message flow

Some Explanation & Notes to remember .

  1. Remote queues doesn’t hold any messages .It is a reference to the actual queue on the remote queue manager local queue .So there will not be any curdepth or maxdepth attribute for this queue
DISPLAY QREMOTE(QM*) ALL
     3 : DISPLAY QREMOTE(QM*) ALL
AMQ8409I: Display Queue details.
   QUEUE(QM1.QR)                           TYPE(QREMOTE)
   ALTDATE(2021-01-01)                     ALTTIME(12.56.20)
   CLUSNL( )                               CLUSTER( )
   CLWLPRTY(0)                             CLWLRANK(0)
   CUSTOM( )                               DEFBIND(OPEN)
   DEFPRTY(0)                              DEFPSIST(NO)
   DEFPRESP(SYNC)                          DESCR( )
   PUT(ENABLED)                            RQMNAME(QM1)
   RNAME(QM1.QL)                           SCOPE(QMGR)
   XMITQ(QM2.XMITQ)                   

2 When we put message to Remote queue by connection to qmgr message will first go to the XMITQ then channel program will take the message through the SDR-RCVR channel to Remote Local QUEUE .If the XMITQ is full then application at sender side cannot put the message .

DISPLAY QLOCAL(QM1.XMITQ) CURDEPTH MAXDEPTH USAGE
     5 : DISPLAY QLOCAL(QM1.XMITQ) CURDEPTH MAXDEPTH USAGE
AMQ8409I: Display Queue details.
   QUEUE(QM1.XMITQ)                        TYPE(QLOCAL)
   CURDEPTH(0)                             MAXDEPTH(5000)
   USAGE(XMITQ)                         

3.If the channel’s are down .Still application able to put the message to QMGR . message will be stored in XMITQ .Once the channel is up then the message will transferred .

Hope this gives some good insight on Point-To-Point Standalone setup .
