To use FioranoMQ WMT, the latest version of the web browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, Opera) is needed. The WMT URL is http://ipaddress:jettyport. In this URL, the 'ipaddress' refers to the IP address or hostname (only one ipaddress is present) where the FioranoMQ Server is running and 'jettyport' refers to the port on which the WMT is running. If FioranoMQ server is running on IP address 192.168.1.46 and the WMT Server is running on port 1780, the URL will read http://192.168.1.46:1780.


Figure 32.2: FioranoMQ Web Management Tool Homepage

The WMT homepage has three fields:

Field Name

Description

User

The User Name by which User will login tothe WMT. The User logging in must exist in the security Realm of FioranoMQ Server. The default User is 'admin'.

Password

Password of the User Name by which the User connects to the WMT. The default password for the 'admin' is pre set.

Refresh Interval

Time Interval after which data is fetched from the Server. This Interval is measured in milli seconds. The value of this interval should be more than 1000 milliseconds. The default value is 2000 (which equivalent to two seconds). This interval should be sufficiently large to allow minimum CPU usage.

To perform certain operation administrator permissions are required.


Figure 32.3: MonitorUsers View

Once logged into WMT, the MonitorUsers may be view. All the tables present in the views can be sorted in both ascending and descending orders by clicking the header of the corresponding column. The images displayed in the column explain the order.

The Filter option can be viewed in the top right-hand corner. The Filter is used to filter tabular data based on the text present in textbox. Filtering is done based upon the filtering column selected in the menu.


Figure 32.4: Filter Options

All data present in the 'Monitor' view is refreshed automatically. 'Configure' views, on the other hand, need to be refreshed manually. For refreshing 'configure' view click on any Configure view and click again on the old configure view. Only ConfigureFMQServer present in JMX will be refreshed automatically. There is an image next to it.

Data is fetched from the Server after every refresh interval. All tables get updated with the new values fetched. To stop refreshing this view, select the image and click the image to start refresh.

During interaction with the Server, if the Server shuts down due to unknown reasons, the WMT will display a warning to the User that reads 'disconnected from server'. When this warning is displayed, the logout prompt will change to the login prompt.


Figure 32.5: Server Disconnected Status

If the FioranoMQ Server running the User can click login to go directly to the page being viewed earlier. If the FioranoMQ Server is not running, the User will be redirected to the login page.

If the Server is restarted and the WMT did not interact with the Server, then clicking on any operation reconnects to Server. To avoid this/override this the User needs to click the same operation manually.

Four links at the top right-hand side top of the page may be viewed:

SaveConfigurations

Saves all the modified properties to the FioranoMQ Server from the current browser page.

Shutdown

Closes the Server that is running. Do not connect any other application to FioranoMQ server before 'shutdown'.

Restart

Closes and restarts the Server. Do not connect any other application to FioranoMQ server before 'shutdown'. When the Server restarts, login from the browser window.

Logout

Disconnects the current page from the WMT Server.

The different views present in the WMT are as follows:

1. Users

  • MonitorUsers view contains all existing Users and their respective connection status. Users are set as connected an 'admin' Connection or JMX Connection is made or if the JMS Application is started. This view also gives information about the maximum connection limit that is set for each user and the current number of connections created by the user.



  • ConfigureUsers view contains the function to modify Users (such as Add User, Delete Selected Users, Changing Password, and Setting Maximum Connections per user). The Import Users and Export Users enable to copying Users to another FioranoMQ Server. These actions are present in the Select Action drop-down menu. To use any one of the actions, select the action from the Select Action drop-down menu and click the Go button. These actions allow the export of all data to a standard file present on most machines. (Mapping needs to be done if file is present on another machine.) The data can be imported to any other Server that starts with FioranoMQ. 


Figure 32.6: Configure Users View

Note: Only the users from 'Administrators' group will have the permissions to do any of the operations mentioned above. 

2. Groups

'Groups' contain information about all groups and its members. Groups can be added using Add Groups and deleted using Delete Selected Groups. For modifying members of an existing group, use Edit Members in Group after selecting the required group. These Actions are available in the Select Action drop-down menu. Select the action and click the Go button.


Figure 32.7: GroupView

Once you click the Go button, a window pops up with existing members and possible options, if the selected action is Edit Members in Group. Select Add Members to see the existing members.

3. Topics

Monitor Topics contains the information about existing topics. Summary is present at the top of the table. An Active Topic refers to a topics that contain either a publisher or a subscriber. The 'Select Action' drop down box lists the operations that can be executed on each Topic destination selected. 'SendMessage' operation will send Persistent Text Messages to the Topic(s) selected. The 'Corrupted Topics' check box, if selected, will display all the corrupted topics in the 'MonitorTopics' view and by default the view displays all the Topics (Corrupted and Non-Corrupted Topics). The corrupted topics can be recovered and replayed using 'Recover Selected Topics' and 'Replay Messages from Topics' operations. More information on this feature can be found under 'Handling data base corruption' chapter. 


Figure 32.9: MonitorTopics View

Configure Topics allows all operations to be performed on topics such as CreateTopic and DeleteSelectedTopics. One can restart a specific Topic destination to get the parameter changes effected using  'Restart Topics' operation. Also available the 'Shutdown Topics' operation to shut unwanted Topic destinations. 

'Edit Topic Properties' can be used to edit all properties related to a topic destination, whereas, 'Edit Topic Subsystem Properties' can be used to modify similar properties at the global level for all Topics. More information on Destination Level Configurations can be found here.


Figure 32.10: ConfigureTopics View

By selecting the EditTopicProperties options from the Select Action drop-down menu and clicking the Go button, it is possible to view all properties and their corresponding values. Values with a different background color need to be saved. Once saved, the Server needs to be restarted to make them take effect or if the changes are done at destination level Topic restart alone will get the changes effected. A description of the property that is selected is provided at the bottom of the browser. The mouse may be moved over the textbox to view the description of the property. Export Topics and Import Topics can be used to save topics to a standard file as well as to create all of them in a FioranoMQ server that is running. Import Topics and Export Topics can be used only by the 'admin' User.


Figure 32.11: Editing Topic Properties

4. Queues

Monitor Queues contains the information about existing queues. A summary is present at the top of the table. Here, Active Queue refers to the queues which contain either a sender or receiver. DeliverableMessages and UndeletedMessages are not updated at regular intervals. To update these values select all the required queues or invoke UpdateSelectedQueues or UpdateAllQueues present in the Select Action drop-down menu. Deliverable Messages count is the number of messages yet to be delivered from the Queue, and Undeleted Messages count denotes the number of messages yet to be acknowledged by the Consumer and deleted from the data base. 

'SendMessage' operation will send Persistent Text Messages to the Queue(s) selected. The 'Corrupted Queues' check box, if selected, will display all the corrupted queues in the 'MonitorQueues' view and by default the view displays all the Queues (Corrupted and Non-Corrupted Queues). The corrupted queues can be recovered and replayed using 'Recover Selected Queues' and 'Replay Messages from Queues' operations. The 'Purge Messages' operation deletes all the messages in a selected Queue.


Figure 32.12: MonitorQueues View

The 'Browse Messages' operation can be handy in browsing messages on a selected Queue and view its properties. When 'Browse Messages' operation is invoked, a new dialogue box is popped up to view the Messages and its properties. 

 

Configure Queues allows all operations to be performed on queues such as CreateQueue and DeleteSelectedQueuesOne can restart a specific Queue destination to get the parameter changes done on it to get effected using  'Restart Queues' operation. Also available the 'Shutdown Queues' operation to shut unwanted Queue destinations. 

'Edit Queue Properties' can be used to edit all properties related to a queue destination, whereas, 'Edit Queue Subsystem Properties' can be used to modify similar properties at the global level for all Queues. More information on Destination Level Configurations can be found here.

By using EditQueueProperties option present under the Select Action drop-down menu it is possible to view all properties and their corresponding values. Values with different background colour need to be saved. Once saved the Server needs to be restarted to make them take effect or if the changes are done at destination level Queue restart alone will get the changes effected. Description of each property that is selected is provided at the bottom of the browser. The mouse may be moved over the textbox to view the description of the property. You are notified if any property requires save configuration and server restart was modified. Export Queues and Import Queues can be used to save queues to a standard file as well as to create all of them in a FioranoMQ Server that is running. Import Queues and Export Queues can be used only by the 'admin' User.

 

Icon

As JMSProducer is a light weight object,we create a single message producer instance for it.So even though multiple JMSProducers are created from the same JMSContext, it is considered as a single message producer object and while monitoring,the producer count of that context is shown as 1 (irrespective of the number of producers created).
