RabbitMQ Essentials. - Second Edition

By: Lovisa Johansson, David Dossot

Overview of this book

RabbitMQ is an open source message queuing software that acts as a message broker using the Advanced Message Queuing Protocol (AMQP). This book will help you to get to grips with RabbitMQ to build your own applications with a message queue architecture. You’ll learn from the experts from CloudAMQP as they share what they've learned while managing the largest fleet of RabbitMQ clusters in the world. Following the case study of Complete Car, you’ll discover how you can use RabbitMQ to provide exceptional customer service and user experience, and see how a message queue architecture makes it easy to upgrade the app and add features as the company grows. From implementing simple synchronous operations through to advanced message routing and tracking, you’ll explore how RabbitMQ streamlines scalable operations for fast distribution. This book will help you understand the advantages of message queue architecture, including application scalability, resource efficiency, and user reliability. Finally, you’ll learn best practices for working with RabbitMQ and be able to use this book as a reference guide for your future app development projects. By the end of this book, you’ll have learned how to use message queuing software to streamline the development of your distributed and scalable applications.

Best Practices and Broker Monitoring

The previous chapters of this book focused on the setup of a successful microservice architecture using RabbitMQ at the example company Complete Car (CC). Many RabbitMQ features were included, however, no system is complete without an understanding of the best practices to use in its implementation. As with all production systems, proper monitoring and alerts are also needed to stay on top of things.

CC's cluster is stable and there are no performance issues. This chapter summarizes the key takeaways learned from CC's system, including best practices and recommendations for queues, routing, exchanges, message handling, and more.

This chapter explores the following topics:

  • How to avoid losing messages
  • Keeping queues and brokers clean
  • Routing best practices
  • Networking over connections and channels
  • Exploring key takeaways
  • Monitoring...
