Qpid Ports Test

The Broker supports configuration of ports to specify the particular AMQP messaging and HTTP management connectivity it offers for use.

Each port is configured with the particular protocols and transports it supports, as well as the Authentication Provider to be used to authenticate connections. When SSL is in use, the port can be configured to accept or require client authentication. Different ports can support different protocols, and many ports can be configured on the Broker.

This test reports the current status and overall connectivity of each port on Apache Qpid Java Broker being monitored.

Target of the test : Apache Qpid Java Broker

Agent deploying the test : An internal/remote agent

Outputs of the test : One set of results for each Port in the target Apache Qpid Java Broker.

Configurable parameters for the test
Parameter Description

Test period

How often should the test be executed.


The IP address of the target server that is being monitored.


The port number through which the Apache Qpid Java Broker communicates. The default port is 8080.


By default, the eG agent executes REST APIs on the target component to collect the required metrics. For the eG agent to execute the REST APIs, a user with monitoring privilege is required. Specify the name of such a user in this text box.


Specify the password corresponding to the user mentioned in the Username text box here.

Confirm Password

Confirm the password by retyping it here.


By default, the SSL flag is set to No, indicating that the target Apache Qpid Java Broker is not SSL-enabled by default. To enable the test to connect to an SSL-enabled Apache Qpid Java Broker, set the SSL flag to Yes.


Specify the duration (in seconds) within which the query executed by this test should time out in this text box.

Detailed Diagnosis

To make diagnosis more efficient and accurate, the eG Enterprise embeds an optional detailed diagnostic capability. With this capability, the eG agents can be configured to run detailed, more elaborate tests as and when specific problems are detected. To enable the detailed diagnosis capability of this test for a particular server, choose the On option. To disable the capability, click on the Off option.

The option to selectively enable/disable the detailed diagnosis capability will be available only if the following conditions are fulfilled:

  • The eG manager license should allow the detailed diagnosis capability.
  • Both the normal and abnormal frequencies configured for the detailed diagnosis measures should not be 0.
