Coming soon: .... QueueZee v3.0 !!
AngusSoft are pleased to announce that we will be releasing a prototype WebSphere Application Server (WAS) estate monitor (WASem) to compliment QueueZee as part of the next release - QueueZee v3.0.

This embedded tool provides a lightweight viewer of your entire WAS estate including significant parameters such as JVM status, start times, pool, memory status and which applications are deployed.  The information is both near real time (configurable) and real time for notifications of major events. The viewer is provisioned via a java Swing client and requires no Websphere classes on the desktop. There is a server component which can be hosted on one or more WebSphere installations which uses public IBM WebSphere and JMX technology to interrogate the estate.  The only other item required is an http server for easy distribution of the client although if required this can be distributed locally as a java archive.

The intent is to provide a lightweight viewer and monitor with minimal infrastructure requirements of its own. It provides a global view of all cells in your estate rather than by attachment on a per cell basis.  It needs no instrumentation, agent deployments or alterations to your server estate.  Its strength is in providing a  global view of status across the estate at minimal  cost in terms of configuration or run time requirement.

Although typical usage would be for Websphere engineering teams and support staff it has also been employed for daily health checks and a real time CMDB.

If you are already using QueueZee v1.x we suggest you keep QueueZee v2.8 separate and move any saved or exported messages you have across via local Queues. You should still be able to export and import other QueueZee configurables like Queue Manager Groups etc.
