Accessing Administration Data in Message Handling System

   In a message handling system a message broker may well
come across information or administrative data ('pragma data') of use
but not urgency during configuration and running.

   An example of such information is where a relation 'join'
was to be made between a stream of messages and a database table,
and where the database table was not suitably indexed to support
efficient implementation of the join.  The broker could indicate to
the database administrator that it would be appropriate to prepare
such an index.

   Information discovered in this way is then tagged to
indicate urgency and that part of the system to which it applies (in
this case, database).  These tags could be used by subscribers to the
pragma stream to make sure that the information was appropriately
routed in an organization.  This publication of asynchronous pragma
data permits administrators to consider such information at a
convenient time.
