Connecting to Streams

July 23, 2021 by Arnaud Cogoluègnes

RabbitMQ Streams Overview introduced streams, a new feature in RabbitMQ 3.9. This post covers how client applications should connect to RabbitMQ nodes to get the most benefit from streams when the stream protocol is in use.

Streams are optimized for high throughput scenarios, that’s why technical details like data locality are critical to get the best out of your RabbitMQ cluster. Client libraries can handle most of the details, but a basic understanding of how things work under the hood is essential when a setup involves extra layers like containers and load balancers. Keep reading if you want to learn more about streams and avoid some headaches when deploying your first stream applications!


First Application With RabbitMQ Streams

July 19, 2021 by Arnaud Cogoluègnes

RabbitMQ Streams Overview introduced streams, a new feature in RabbitMQ 3.9. This post continues by showing how to use streams with the Java client. We will write our first application that publishes messages to a stream, and then consumes them.


RabbitMQ Streams Overview

July 13, 2021 by Arnaud Cogoluègnes

RabbitMQ 3.9 introduces a new type of data structure: streams. Streams unlock a set of use cases that could have been tedious to implement with “traditional” queues. Let’s discover in this post how streams expand the capabilities of RabbitMQ.


RabbitMQ 3.9.0 release calendar

July 9, 2021 by Jean-Sébastien Pédron & Gerhard Lazu

We intend to release RabbitMQ 3.9.0 on 26 July 2021. While we have been testing it internally for months, with production-like workloads, we need your help to check that it is as stable and reliable as we believe it is.


Notify me when RabbitMQ has a problem

May 3, 2021 by David Ansari & Gerhard Lazu
If you want to be notified when your RabbitMQ deployments have a problem, now you can set up the RabbitMQ monitoring and alerting that we have made available in the RabbitMQ Cluster Operator repository. Rather than asking you to follow a series of steps for setting up RabbitMQ monitoring & alerting, we have combined this in a single command. While this is a Kubernetes-specific quick-start, and you can use these Prometheus alerts outside of Kubernetes, the setup will require more consideration and effort on your part.

Preparing for the Bintray Shutdown: How to Migrate

March 31, 2021 by Michael Klishin
Bintray, one of the services our team currently uses to distribute packages, is shutting down on May 1st, 2021. This post explains what alternative services are available for the RabbitMQ community today or will be before the shutdown date. No new releases will be published to Bintray going forward. Those who do not switch from Bintray before May 1st will see their deployments begin failing. We highly recommend making migration off of Bintray both an important and urgent task.

How to Monitor Authentication Attempts

March 1, 2021 by Diana Parra Corbacho

We have been constantly improving the monitoring capabilities that are built into RabbitMQ since shipping native Prometheus support in 3.8.0. Monitoring the broker and its clients is critically important for detecting issues before they affect the rest of the environment and, eventually, the end users.

RabbitMQ 3.8.10 exposes client authentication attempts metrics via both the Prometheus endpoint and the HTTP API.


RabbitMQ Kubernetes Operator reaches 1.0

November 17, 2020 by Yaron Parasol

We are pleased to announce that the RabbitMQ Operator for Kubernetes is now generally available. The RabbitMQ Operator makes it easy to provision and manage RabbitMQ clusters consistently on any certified Kubernetes distribution. Operators inform the Kubernetes container orchestration system how to provision and control specific applications. The Kubernetes (hereafter K8s) Operator pattern is a way to extend the K8s API and state management to include the provisioning and management of custom resources – resources not provided in a default K8s deployment. In this post, we’ll discuss how the Operator enables the K8s system to control a RabbitMQ cluster.
