MSMQ Outgoing Multicast Session

This test auto-discovers the sessions on the Microsoft Message Queuing (MSMQ) server and for each session, reports the amount of data and count of messages sent to multiple destination queues. Using this test, administrators can figure out the session during which maximum number of messages were sent and maximum amount of data was sent.

Target of the test : A Microsoft Message Queuing (MSMQ) Server

Agent deploying the test : An internal agent

Outputs of the test : One set of results for every session on the MSMQ server monitored.

Measurements made by the test
Measurement Description Measurement Unit Interpretation

Outgoing multicast data

Indicates the amount of data bytes sent during this session to multiple destination queues.

KB

Compare the value of this measure across sessions to identify the session during which maximum amount of data was sent to multiple destination queues.

Outgoing multicast data rate

Indicates the rate at which data bytes were sent during this session to multiple destination queues.

KB/sec

 

Outgoing multicast messages

Indicates the number of messages sent during this session to multiple destination queues.

Number

Compare the value of this measure across sessions to identify the session during which maximum number of messages were sent to multiple destination queues.
