IBM WebSphere MQ File Transfer
WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition is a system that transfers files in a managed and auditable way, regardless of file size or operating systems used. Message transfers are monitored, logged, and tracked for auditing purposes. Users can see the progress of the transfer and see where failures arise during a transfer.
This figure shows the layout of a simple WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition setup and transfer. There are two agents. Each agent connects with its own agent queue manager in a WebSphere MQ network. A file is transferred from the agent through the WebSphere MQ network, to the agent. Also in the WebSphere MQ network you have the coordination queue manager and a command queue manager. Applications and tools connect these queue managers to configure, administer, operate, and log WebSphere MQ File Transfer activity.
You can use WebSphere MQ File Transfer to perform these tasks:
