RabbitMQ – API Statistics – Documentation Trail

I appreciate I may be the only person in the world who cares about this, but every time I try and monitor a RabbitMQ server, I spend time digging through the documentation reminding myself what exactly I have to do. So here goes:

Step 1: Enable the RabbitMQ Management Console

Management Plugin

Step 2: Download the CLI to inspect stats in a terminal environment

Management Command Line Tool

Step 3: Remind myself of how the HTTP API works

Step 4: Find the secret HTTP stats page (the stats link doesn’t work on the above page)

That’s it – apart from figuring out how to parse JSON with grep, but that’s another story.
