QueueMonitor Versions

1.6.5 (2017/05/25)
  • Configurable alert/report handling for each task - whether report is sent always or never, after each failure, or only on significant events - once per failure and once per recovery.
  • Reduced memory usage during Processed file cleanup.
1.6.4 (2017/05/12)
  • Installer didn't work on 32-bit Windows.
1.6.3 (2017/02/21)

  • Installed MSMQ is no longer a requirement for agent service to run.
1.6.1 (2017/01/09)
  • Added advanced heartbeat check - QueueMonitor works together with your application, thus checking whether both you application and MSMQ system are alive. In this mode heartbeat messages are sent to one queue, but received on another.
  • Configurable heartbeat label and body.
  • Execution history now offers both full history and highlights, where highlights are historic events where where task went from OK to ERROR status or vice versa, or if it was manually run.
1.6.0 (2016/12/20)

  • Fixed bug in Queue size check task when date fields are used for filtering.
1.5.5 (2016/08/25)
  • Fixed memory leaks in Admin console.
  • Admin console on a machine without Agent can't create new tasks.

1.4.1 (2015/10/29)
  • Multi document XML action - when input contains multiple documents inside one message, this action can be used to extract individual documents using XPath and process each of them individually.

  • Bugfix: line breaks were not preserved correctly in some case, for instance within SQL commands.
1.3.4 (2015/08/20)

  • Process SQL task. QueueMonitor periodically executes specified SQL Query, and map results to in-memory messages. For each of these messages, a set of actions will be performed.
  • Queue size task now offers ability to exclude subqueues when counting messages from main queue. However it is less efficient since we can't use fast MSMQ function which returns number of messages in a queue and all its subqueues.
1.0.6 (2015/04/15)
  • Changes to SQL connections were not saved if performed from global Settings dialog.
1.0.5 (2015/04/14)

  • Fixed handling of authenticated queues.
  • Added adjusting of "Time to be received" and "Time to reach queue" message properties.
1.0.3 (2015/03/16)

1.0.2 (2015/03/02)
  • When single task is executed manually, QueueMonitor displays full execution log.
  • Additional debug data for task execution.
1.0.1 (2015/02/20)

1.0.0 (2015/02/18)

  • Copy/paste of actions.
  • Added splitter to actions configuration to allow better resizing.

  • Default alerts - it's now possible to manage failure/recovery actions from global configuration, and not on each task separately.
  • "Write to Event Log" action.
  • Fixed problem when editing tasks which targets queues that are no longer in MSMQ.
  • Date macros for Success/Failure folders for "Process Files" task.
