MQ Channel Throttler Overview

 The MQ Channel Throttler v1.0.2 (MQCT) provides the ability to control/throttle the number of connection calls, open calls and/or messages (or bytes) that flow over a channel. MQCT operates with IBM MQ v6.0, v7.0, v7.1, v7.5, v8.0 and v9.0 in Windows, Unix, IBM i (OS/400) and Linux environments. It operates with Sender, Receiver, Server, Requestor, Cluster-Sender, Cluster-Receiver and Server Connection channels of the MQ queue managers.

MQCT is a simple drop-in solution that provides throttling for MQ queue managers. The throttling can be configured for queue manager to queue manager channels or for client application to queue manager channels.

MQCT can be used to throttle the following MQ API calls: MQCONN, MQCONNX, MQOPEN, MQGET, MQPUT and MQPUT1.

The MQCT can be configured as a channel message exit or as a channel send/receive exit.

On IBM i, Linux, Unix and Windows, MQCT can be configured and used with a non-default installation of MQ in a multi-install MQ environment.
