The Story Behind QPacity
Allan Bartleywood is a senior MQ architect and consultant with one of the premier résumés in the field. Time after time he’d enter an MQ shop a little too late. The environment had already been provisioned and company officials would desperately ask him, “Are the boxes big enough? Do we have enough of them? What’s the actual capacity?”
Traditional MQ performance monitors and support packs couldn’t answer the question. They measured what MQ was doing – not what MQ could do. And the public MQ performance guidelines were all lab-generated and couldn’t possibly reflect a particular environment’s reality.
So Allan would write and rewrite scripts to test capacity and deliver answers for each new MQ environment he encountered. He was living the same day over and over again. Finally, he’d had enough. He wanted out of the nightmare. So he developed QPacity as his ultimate end solution for MQ capacity planning. QPacity is the product of Allan’s 2-plus decades of capacity planning and MQ architecting that solves real problems in your enterprise environment.
What's My Baseline?
MQ isn’t black magic. It’s measurable with QPacity.
To Scale MQ Vertically Or Horizontally?
A firm has a 4-CPU LPAR of a physical machine. Someone on staff says the firm needs to upgrade to 8 CPUs. How do you justify this vertical scaling?
It's The Apps! No, It's MQ!!
MQ shoulders an undue share of the blame for system slowdown. That’s because it’s been so hard to measure. The battle rages far and wide between the software engineers and the MQ architects, where each blames the other. It’s this battle, more than any other factor, that drove TxMQ Senior Architect and Consultant Allan Bartleywood to develop QPacity.
