Message Queuing Resources

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

One of the primary functions of Message Queuing is to facilitate asynchronous messaging. Therefore, Message Queuing resources provide storage for messages until the appropriate applications or clients can receive the messages. Because Message Queuing is not designed to be used as a database or as long-term RAM, if too many messages accumulate in individual queues in Message Queuing, the volume of messages may have an adverse effect on system performance.
