Claim of US Patent No. 9,092,282

1. One or more computer-readable media having computer-executable instructions embodied thereon for performing a method of
optimizing an allocation of channels to a queue manager, the method comprising:
building a channel-allocation history for a queue manager in a messaging-middleware environment by:
(1) retrieving, at a point in time, channel data for the queue manager,
(2) determining a usage number that indicates how many different channels are running at the point in time,
(3) determining a maximum number of channels allocated to the queue manager at the point in time, and
(4) generating an optimization data point for the point in time that comprises the usage number divided by the maximum number
of channels;

using the channel-allocation history, which comprises a plurality optimization data points for a plurality of points in time,
generating a comparison of channel usage and channel allocation for the queue manager over a time period; and

outputting for display, the comparison.
