Sun GlassFish Message Queue 4.4 Administration Guide

Administration in a Production Environment

In a production environment in which applications must be reliably deployed and run, administration is more important. Administrative tasks to be performed depend on the complexity of the messaging system and of the applications it must support. Such tasks can be classified into two general categories: setup operations and maintenance operations.

Setup Operations

Administrative setup operations in a production environment typically include some or all of the following:

Administrator security

General security

Administered objects

Broker clusters


Memory management

Maintenance Operations

Because application performance, reliability, and security are at a premium in production environments, message service resources must be tightly monitored and controlled through ongoing administrative maintenance operations, including the following:

Broker administration and tuning

Administered objects

Client management
