RabbitMQ monitoring with Netdata

RabbitMQ is the open source message broker.

This module monitors RabbitMQ performance and health metrics.

It collects data using following endpoints:

  • /api/overview
  • /api/node/{node_name}
  • /api/vhosts

Metrics

All metrics have "rabbitmq." prefix.

Configuration

Edit the go.d/rabbitmq.conf configuration file using edit-config from the Netdata config directory, which is typically at /etc/netdata.

cd /etc/netdata # Replace this path with your Netdata config directory
sudo ./edit-config go.d/rabbitmq.conf

Here is an example for 2 servers:

jobs:
- name: local
url: http://localhost:15672

- name: remote
url: http://203.0.113.10:15672

For all available options, see the module configuration file.

Troubleshooting

To troubleshoot issues with the rabbitmq collector, run the go.d.plugin with the debug option enabled. The output should give you clues as to why the collector isn't working.

  • Navigate to the plugins.d directory, usually at /usr/libexec/netdata/plugins.d/. If that's not the case on your system, open netdata.conf and look for the plugins setting under [directories].

    cd /usr/libexec/netdata/plugins.d/
  • Switch to the netdata user.

    sudo -u netdata -s
  • Run the go.d.plugin to debug the collector:

    ./go.d.plugin -d -m rabbitmq
