Nastel response to Log4j vulnerabilities

2. Popular FAQs & Articles
Sometimes the data you get is not quite what is expected. These FAQs provide some troubleshooting ideas to try when data appears to be missing.
Navigator: Objects missing from a viewlet
XRay: Filtering Viewlets
Put or Get Disable
One use case that many IBM MQ customers have is the need to disable/enable a queue for put/get. To do this, you would typically need permission to alter the object, which means you could make more changes than just these. In Navigator, we added the ability to specifically change just these two settings.
The ability to change the Get Messages and Put Messages attributes for a queue using the object menu requires the Change Queue Extended right in the Navigator Security Manager.
See this FAQ for more details:
3. Middleware Performance Benchmark
What’s the best performing messaging platform for your application and workload?
This is a question that can take immense effort to analyze and answer.
Whether you are building a new app, upgrading existing, or moving workloads to the cloud, this report will help you make the right decision.
We have done extensive performance testing under varying workloads and configurations to compare messaging middleware platforms.
This report compares the performance of these commonly used messaging middleware platforms:
- IBM MQ
- Apache Kafka
- ActiveMQ Classic
- ActiveMQ Artemis
The report also includes methodology, environment, the performance of tests, the results, and the conclusions.
4. XRay COVID-19 Data Lake
We have pulled together multiple COVID-19 datasets from CDC, Johns Hopkins University, and several others into a single interactive data lake.
The data lake is updated daily with the latest COVID-19 stats from around the world. View the dashboard live, no registration required!
