Being new to enterprise mq's, rabbit in particular, is there a definition
for what an exchange does/is? The tutorial talks about how use use an
exchange, and the 3 different types of exchanges but is there more
conceptually to an exchange than functioning as a logical abstraction for
segmenting queues and routing per virtual host and/or server?
>From what I've read so far, it doesn't appear to be possible for an exchange
to span servers, true?
Where do vhosts fit in this model? server -> vhost -> exchange -> queue?
Are they just another logical abstraction that sits on top of exchanges?
Is segmenting security the main/only reason?
Links are always welcome, I've attempted to search for this information but
get pages of code examples for results. So now I'm asking.
