The EMS and the Adapter each use queues. The Adapter reads the JMS messages in a queue on the EMS and places the messages in the Adapter’s internal XML, alarm, and event queues.

The XML queue stores raw, unparsed messages from the EMS. The Adapter does not specify the message type until it parses the message and then places it in the alarm or event queue.

The Adapter logs when any of these queues changes size by 50 messages more or fewer. You can use the Queue Log to determine if the Adapter is processing messages slowly, causing message backup.
