Using the Dead Letter Queue solution (version 6.4.xx only)

Note

The documentation for the Dead Letter Queue (DLQ) solution in this appendix supports the DLQ solution that was distributed with MainView AutoOPERATOR version 6.4.xx. For documentation for the DLQ solution that is distributed with MainView AutoOPERATOR version 6.5.xx and later, refer to Using the Dead Letter Queue (DLQ) solution.

The Dead Letter Queue solution performs different functions that can be invoked separately or together. Use the Dead Letter Management portion of the solution when you want to:

  • Be informed automatically by an ALERT when a valid dead letter (a message with a dead letter header) arrives in the dead letter queue

  • Have invalid dead letters (messages without a dead letter header) moved from the dead letter queue to an alternate queue and have an ALERT created after the messages are moved

Use the Dead Letter Aging Management portion of the solution when you want to fire an EXEC once a day that generates two ALERTs:

  • A nonvolatile ALERT containing the total number of messages that are more than one day old

  • A nonvolatile ALERT containing the total number of messages that are more than one week old from the dead letter queue

The following table describes the different Rules that you can implement to perform various features of the Dead Letter Queue solution.
