This package contains a set of nagios checks useful for monitoring a RabbitMQ server. They use the RabbitMQ management interface over HTTP and therefore have a very light profile on the Nagios server.

See the documentation on the RabbitMQ management interface for more details on what it provides.


  • master - Default and development branch which use
    . All pull request are merged on this branch and tested before any merging or backporting to other branches
  • libperl-monitoring-plugin - Stable branche which use the perl
  • libperl-nagios-plugin - Stable branche which use the perl

NOTE: The perl Nagios::plugin is now deprecated and renamed into Monitoring::plugin. It's explained here.

Currently we have the following checks:

  • check_rabbitmq_aliveness

    • Use the
      API to send/receive a message.
  • check_rabbitmq_connections

    • Use the
      API to gather details of connections used, their state and their throughput
  • check_rabbitmq_exchange

    • Use the
      API to collect average rates of confirmed, published in and published out messages/second in a period of time on a given exchange.
  • check_rabbitmq_objects

    • Use a variety of APIs to count instances of various objects on the server. These include vhosts, exchanges, bindings, queues and channels.
  • check_rabbitmq_overview

    • Use the
      API to collect the number of pending, ready and unacknowledged messages on the server
  • check_rabbitmq_partition

    • Use the
      API to check for partitions in a RabbitMQ cluster.
  • check_rabbitmq_cluster

    • Use the
      API to check how many node are alive in the cluster.
  • check_rabbitmq_queue

    • Use the
      API to collect the number of pending, ready and unacknowledged messages and the number of consumers on a given queue or all the queues available. Exclude parameter also works if all queues are checked
  • check_rabbitmq_server

    • Use the
      API to gather resource usage of the rabbitmq server node
  • check_rabbitmq_shovels

    • Use the
      API check that all the shovels of the given RabbitMQ host are running
