MO71 Datasheet thumbnail

MO71 runs on Windows or Intel Linux but can connect, via the MQ client, and administer all versions of IBM MQ which are in support. In particular this includes the z/OS® platform including Queue Sharing Group (QSG) installations.

For queue managers running on systems where connectivity has a high latency or low bandwidth, or where there are large numbers of MQ objects to view, MO71 can take advantage of the performance boost provided by the MQMONA Command Server Agent.
