Managing a RabbitMQ Cluster

eG Enterprise is capable of automatically discovering a RabbitMQ cluster using a port-based scanning technique. To manage an auto-discovered RabbitMQ cluster, follow the steps below:

  1. Login to the eG admin interface as admin with password admin.
  2. Follow the Infrastructure -> Components -> Manage/Unmanage/Delete menu sequence in the Admin home page.
  3. Figure 1 will then appear. Select RabbitMQ Cluster as the Component type in Figure 1. All auto-discovered RabbitMQ clusters will be displayed in the Unmanaged Components list, with an asterisk (*) symbol alongside. This 'asterisk' denotes that the RabbitMQ cluster has been 'newly' discovered by eG Enterprise. To manage a cluster, select it from the Unmanaged Components list and click the < button in Figure 1. This will transfer the selection to the Managed Components list (see Figure 2). Finally, click the Update button .

If for some reason, eG Enterprise is unable to auto-discover the RabbitMQ cluster, then, you will have to manually add the cluster to the eG Enterprise system. For this, follow the steps below:

  1. Login to the eG admin interface as admin with password admin.
  2. Follow the menu sequence Infrastructure -> Components -> Add/Modify in the Admin Home page.
  3. In the page that appears next, select RabbitMQ Cluster as the Component type and click the Add New Component button therein.
  4. Figure 3 will then appear.

  5. In Figure 3, provide the Host IP/Name of any node in the cluster. Assign a Nick name to the cluster.
  6. Since the RabbitMQ Cluster can be monitored in an Agentless manner alone, the Agentless flag will be enabled by default.
  7. Set Other as the OS and Web Service as the Mode.
  8. Then, pick the Remote Agent that should do agentless monitoring of the cluster.
  9. Next, assign a External Agent to the cluster.
  10. Finally, click the Add button to add the cluster to the eG Enterprise system. Components manually added will be automatically managed by eG Enterprise.
