Archiving, indexing and search for AMQP messages.

Project Description

This package is an add-on application for gocept.amqprun that provides three features:

  • Archive queue messages by writing them to the filesystesm
  • Index those messages using ElasticSearch
  • Search for messages with a HTML/JavaScript GUI


gocept.amqparchive requires an ElasticSearch server. To set up the archive and index portion, add something like this to your gocept.amqprun configuration:

  amount 2
  component-configuration site.zcml
  gocept.amqparchive.elastic_hostname localhost:9200

and in site.zcml:


  <include package="gocept.amqprun" />
  <include package="gocept.amqparchive" />

    routing_key=" key.two key.three"

The HTML/JavaScript GUI expects /elasticsearch to proxy to the ElasticSearch server, and /messages to point to the archive directory (/path/to/archive in our example). Here’s an nginx config snippet:

http {
  upstream elasticsearch {
    server localhost:9200;

  server {
    listen localhost:8080;

    location /search/ {
      alias /path/to/gocept.amqparchive.egg/gocept/amqparchive/browser/;
      index index.html;

    location /elasticsearch/ {
      proxy_pass http://elasticsearch/;

    location /messages/ {
      alias /path/to/archive/;
      autoindex on;

1.2.6 (2014-02-17)

  • Update to ElasticSearch 1.0 API.

1.2.5 (2014-02-14)

  • Allow configuring multiple elasticsearch hosts.
  • Fix bug in reindex_directory: we need to index the path relativ to the base directory, not the full filename.
  • Start reindexing in parallel while files are still being collected.

1.2.4 (2013-11-27)

  • Add parallel worker mode to reindex_directory.
  • Handle invalid XML input (#10864).

1.2.3 (2012-04-18)

  • Make amqp server configurable for tests.

1.2.1 (2012-02-22)

  • Switch to plone.testing.
