MSMQ MultiCast (PGM) and garantied ordering


I have eleven C# applications running on eleven different computers sending
packets to a MSMQ MultiCast configured queue (same address for all). Those
eleven senders also act as receivers.

Do all receivers receive the sent packets in the same order?

Do all receivers receive the sent packets in the same order?

No. Even if you were using 'regular' transmission rather than multicast the
answer would be the same. MSMQ offers limited guarantees regarding message
order mostly to do with preserving order with respect to a single sender in
transaction mode, it doesn't offer overall guarantees about message delivery
order between multiple senders..

It is possible that systems on the same LAN segment might see the same
multicast messages at the same time and so might by chance happen to receive
packets in the same order. However, since Ethernet works by collision
detection not collision avoidance it is always possible that a collision
could cause one system to not see the original transmission because of a
collision with some other transmission which could result in a different
receive order.

Hello NG! I've been playing a little with Multiple-Destination Messaging in MSMQ using multicast addresses. I'm trying to assign a multicast address to a queue with C# code (using a MessageQueue object from the System.Messaging namespace), but so far I didn't succeed. When using the Computer Management snap-in of the MMC, the multicast address is just a tab of the queue's properties. Setting the same MC address on several...

Is there something special I need to do to send data to a multicast IP and have it go across a router? Router is a Win2000 Server connecting 2 networks via RRAS PPTP. The routing appears to be working because I can ping the multicast address and get responses from the server on the other network. I didn't think ping would work like that but as long as I have the server process running I can ping the multicast IP and get a response. The...

I've got a strange problem receiving multicast packets in a C# application. What's strange is that it works *sometimes* but not always. I create a socket, call bind(), set the multicast socket option and then fire off a thread that calls "receiveFrom()" in a loop. This works sometimes, but other times it'll get into a funk where the "receiveFrom()" call doesn't return even though a packet trace capture (Ethereal) shows that the...

Hi guys, I have a daemon running on Debian and listening for multicast packets sent to (ZeroConf Multicast DNS queries). The server is plugged into a VLAN trunk with eth0 and joins several VLANs using virtual interfaces (i.e. eth0.xxx). It should be able to capture the UDP packets on any interfaces, so it spawns a thread for each interface specified in a config file, and for each thread it creates a socket: ...

I was working on a multicast client and ran into a possible problem. Here is the code... udpClient = new UdpClient(4000); udpClient.JoinMulticastGroup(IPAddress.Parse("")); udpClient.BeginReceive(new AsyncCallback(DoUDPReceive), this); My concern is that it seems to make exclusive use of port 4000 so I worry that in a Citrix environment, it would fail with an AddressAlreadyInUse exception like it does if you run two...

Hi, I have a conceptual question on Events and Multicast Delegates. Let me explain: As we know an event is a multicast delegate. What we declare as an event is inherently a multicast delegate. I really do not undrestand what additional features the "event" keyword adds to multicast delegate. The only thing that I see as an additional feature is a "Thunder Icon" near event name in VS IDE when intellisense works;).
