QueueMonitor Actions

What is an action in QueueMonitor?

Actions allow you to customize how QueueMonitor processes messages. You can choose series of steps in which message is parsed, changed, sometimes depending on content of message or some other condition. At the end it's usually sent to some other queue, saved database or file, etc.

Actions available in both Standard and Professional editions

MSMQ actions

Send to queue
Sends message to a MSMQ queue.
Move to subqueue
Moves message to subqueue of source queue.

Save to filesystem actions

Save to single .mq file

Save all processed messages to single .mq file. All message properties are saved. Each time task is run - a new .mq file will be created, unless there are no messages to be processed. If task includes multiple queues, each of them will get separate .mq file.

This action is mostly useful when lot of messages are saved. E.g. when backing up journal.

Save to separate .mq files
Save each processed message to separate .mq file. All message properties are saved.
Save body
Saves message's body to a file. Other message properties are not saved.

This is work in progress, and we always prefer to put stuff people actually need on top of our To-do list. If you need an action that's not already available we'd be glad to hear about it.
