MSMQ scalability and use cases RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am sorry if this is the wrong forum, but I couldn't find a specific forum for MSMQ and BizTalk uses MSMQ heavily, so I thought this question could be asked here.

    I am evaluating MSMQ and comparing it to other alternatives to choose the one which fits my situation the best. I`ve found a lot of information googling but there are some gaps that I would like to fill.

    Do you know any success case of big companies using MSMQ?

    Do you have any evaluation/benchmark available? Anything regarding to scalability?





    Edit: one more question - I read during my research that my client is able to persist the message if my queue server is not available, so it can be sent later. I downloaded a example and I am not being able to reproduce. Does this information hold true?

  • Hi

    Biztalk doesn't use MSMQ. It has an adapter that can communicate with MSMQ, but it can make integrations without this technology in most cases. A product that in some ways can be compared to Biztalk uses MSMQ (Scribe, http://www.scribesoft.com/). There is a forum for MSMQ: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/msmq/threads.

    Biztalk can be compared to MSMQ in some ways that this is a product that is used in many fortune 500 companies according to MS.

  • Hi Oscar,

    I have used MSMQ in combination with BizTalk several times, also in big companies (and we have quite a few in NL). From what I've heard MQ Series should be better, but never worked with that.

    Please follow Torben's link to the MSMQ forum. There are more people able to answer your specific question.



    regards Rob
