RMQ CLI Monitor

Project Description


A flexible RMQ monitor that keeps track of RMQ, notifying you over multiple channels when connections cannot be made, queues have not been declared, and when queue lengths increase beyond specified limits.


$ pip install amqpeek

Once installed, you can then setup AMQPeek to suit your needs by editing the configuration file

Create configuration file

To create a base configuration file:

$ amqpeek --gen_config

This will create a file called amqpeek.yaml in you current directory. Here you can setup your connection details for RMQ, define queues you wish to monitor and define the notifier channels you wish to use. Edit this file to suit your needs


listing all options:

$ amqpeek --help

Run AMQPeek with no arguments: This runs the monitoring script once and then exits out (useful when running AMQPeek as a Cron job)

$ amqpeek

Run AMQPeek with an interval: This monitors RMQ, running the tests every 10 minutes in a continuous loop (useful when running AMQPeek under Supervisor or something similar)

$ amqpeek --interval 10

You can also specify the location of a configuration file to use instead of the default location of your current directory

$ amqpeek --config config.yaml

Notification channels

AMQPeek supports multiple notification channels.

Currently supported channels:

  • Slack
  • Email (SMTP)

These are controlled via the configuration file, under notifiers. You can mix and match the notifiers you wish to use, and you can have multiples of the same notifier types.
