Hi, Henri:

You might consider using the Rabbit management HTTP API from scripts that run
at Nagio's behest to monitor Rabbit.  The API exposes a huge wealth of info
on broker state and doesn't require you to add any plugins to the mix.

The very soon to release book "RabbitMQ in Action" by Williams and Videla (who
both lurk on this list) has a nice treatment of monitoring Rabbits in this way...
It's also currently available as a preview ebook, and I think their sample code
is on GitHub as well.

Best regards,

Subject: [rabbitmq-discuss] nagios snmp plugin for version 2.8.1?


Looking for ideas on how to collect snmp stats for rabbitmq queues. 

I am running version 2.8.1 on linux 

I looked into Scott Brooks' nagios plugin on github, but that was developed for version 1.7.1 and I have had problems with it. 

I have installed the nagios plugins developed by James Casey. Thank you James. 

However, I need more detailed queue stats. 

Any suggestions? 

I am also looking at RockSteady if anyone has any experience?
