Foglight for IBM WebSphere MQ

Simplified Performance Monitoring of IBM
WebSphere MQ

Foglight® allows you to resolve incidents that may arise within the IBM® WebSphere® MQ infrastructure before they become an issue for your business—improving service levels and reducing the risk of downtime. With Foglight's MQ monitoring capabilities, you'll have a correlated 360-degree view of your application environments, including applications dependent on MQ. This allows you to find the root causes of problems, prioritize them and fix them quickly.

  • Discover and adapt to infrastructure changes automatically
  • Manage applications across complex architectures
  • Monitor, correlate and present data from multiple perspectives
  • Get immediate alert notifications of incidents
  • Determine root cause of problems faster


  • Improve Service Levels – Foglight will model and manage your applications according to the
    service(s) they support, whether you have contractual service level agreements or a basic understanding of what the business needs.
  • Reduce Incident Mean-Time-to-Resolution – Foglight correlates metrics, components and relationships across your MQ messaging and IT infrastructures, allowing you to identify and diagnose the root cause of the incident and assign the right team to resolve it.
  • Mitigate Risk Downtime – With Foglight's historical views of performance, you can easily identify trends and prevent downtime.
  • Lower Operational Costs – Its automated diagnostic capabilities provide all of the relevant information you need to understand and resolve an incident properly the first time.
  • Experience Extensive Visibility – Foglight gives you new levels of insight into critical applications and end-user experience.
  • Adapt to Change Quickly – On installation, Foglight discovers MQ Objects automatically as new applications are introduced and adapts as existing applications are modified.
  • Manage Applications Across Complex Architectures – Foglight tracks performance and availability of application services across multiple dedicated or shared computing resources.
  • Monitor from Multiple Perspectives – Foglight provides intelligent monitoring, correlation and presentation of multiple perspectives, including end user, application performance, database, service levels, infrastructure and the WebSphere MQ ESB.
  • Correlate Between Application Service Levels and Messaging Environment Health – By analyzing real-time MQ performance monitoring and availability data from the Foglight server, Foglight's MQ technology determines whether messages are being sent, received and processed successfully.
  • Get Notified Immediately – In response to pre-defined performance thresholds or events, Foglight immediately notifies you of incidents via event console, e-mail, page, SNMP or other mediums.
  • Automate Corrective Actions – You can define rules for Foglight to automate triggering notifications as well as corrective actions in response to specific events.
