Weighted distributed queues - configure general parameters

After you create a weighted distributed queue, you can modify and define general property values, such as changing the load balancing policy or specifying a SAF export policy.

To configure general values for the members of a weighted distributed queue:

  1. If you have not already done so, in the Change Center of the Administration Console, click Lock & Edit (see Use the Change Center).
  2. In the Administration Console, navigate to the uniform distributed queue resource that you want to configure:
  3. On the Configuration: General page:
    1. In JNDI Name, enter the JNDI name used to look up the distributed queue within the JNDI namespace. Applications use the JNDI Name to look up the distributed queue.

      Note: A distributed queue that does not have a JNDI Name can be referenced by passing the Name of the distributed queue to javax.jms.QueueSession.createQueue().

    2. In Load Balancing Policy, specify a policy (Round Robin or Random) for how messages are distributed to the members of this distributed queue.
    3. In Forward Delay, specify number of seconds after which a distributed queue member with no consumers waits before forwarding its messages to other distributed queue members that do have consumers.
    4. In Reset Delivery Count On Forward, specify whether or not the delivery count is reset during message forwarding between distributed queue members.
    5. In Unit-of-Order Routing, specify whether the distributed destination member is determined using HASH or by using the Path Service.
    6. In SAF Export Policy, specify whether a user can send messages to this distributed queue using the Store-and-Forward service.

    For more information about these fields, see Configuration Options.

  4. Save your changes:
  5. To activate these changes, in the Change Center of the Administration Console, click Activate Changes.
    Not all changes take effect immediately—some require a restart (see Use the Change Center).
