Difference between Channeled- and Queued Message handler concept

What are the main differences between these two design patterns? The documentation doesn't really going into the details...


I can see some slight differences on the block diagram of these, but I cannot really get what is really the difference between them. And when to select one above the other.

The difference is that the QMH uses Queues, while the CMH uses Messenger Channels, a type of Asynchronous Channel Wire, created by some of the best and brightest minds in LabVIEW R&D (with initials like JK and AQ) and released publicly in LabVIEW 2016.


Since that time (with a minor exception, since solved, with a problem involving Messenger Channel Wires and LabVIEW Real-Time), I've been using Channel Wires for (almost) all of my asynchronous communication.  I tend to not use the NI Templates for either the QMH or CMH, and have designed my own version of the CMH which works very well for me.
