In today's distributed application environments, more than ever before, there is a need for proactive middleware management and monitoring solutions. Issues are no longer relegated to enterprise messaging backbones like IBM WebSphere MQ and now include many external integrations and feeding points like application servers, brokers for data transformation, external gateways such as IBM WebSphere DataPower, Web services, and other data sources. In the typical use of standard IBM WebSphere MQ monitoring products, notification of issues in that larger middleware domain were non-existent. But today that is insufficient and dangerous.

In this article, learn an approach to middleware management from the experiences of an IT veteran; an expert in management and monitoring of transactional environments. Discover a simple visualization technique for understanding your middleware world and find out how to expand the monitored environment without overburdening staff.
