Keep an eye on MSMQ queues
As its name suggests, QueueMonitor can be used for monitoring queues created on the MSMQ servers, so as to make sure that the queue is not blocked by poison messages. Furthermore, it can be used for scheduling various maintenance tasks, as well as process queued messages or move them to another queue.
The admin console it comes with displays a forthright interface where all the operations are placed inside a structured table, alongside their status, creation date and scheduling information.
Backup queues and get event notifications
When quotas in the queue are full, new message might get rejected, so its is advisable that you run periodical backups to make sure all messages are saved. QueueMonitor can help you out in this matter, creating copies of specific queues for safe keeping.
Aside form backup tasks, QueueMonitor can be instructed to perform a variety of other operations, such as managing poison messages, processing messages or checking to see that all the services are properly running.
Furthermore, it can notify you via e-mail about events that require your assistance, such as situations when the number of messages is high or the MSMQ server is down.
A MSMQ maintenance and monitoring tool
QueueMonitor helps you keep an eye on the MSMQ queue, making sure that all messages are efficiently and quickly processed. It can detect messages that fail to deliver and schedule routine tasks, saving you the time and the effort necessary to manually perform maintenance operations.
QueueMonitor helps you monitor and automate your MSMQ queues. Create tasks, schedule them, and pick which actions will be performed.
Queue journals are very useful, but if you’re not removing messages from them entire MSMQ can stop accepting new messages when quotas are filled up. With QueueMonitor you can periodicaly save messages to backup files and remove them from journal.
