Getting Data In

Monitor RabbitMQ queues and exchanges

I am interested in using Splunk to monitor queue depths and message timings on a RabbitMQ install. I've found the AMQP modular input plugin, but it seems that this plugin actually pulls messages from the queues, which I don't want to do. The rabbit management UI has some ootb graph widgets which would be useful, but I'd like to provide a single dashboard for monitoring this data in Splunk.

What's the best way to approach this scenario? Is this plugin correct? Do I need to observe the Rabbit logs (they are pretty verbose and would consume a fair chunk of index volume)

To monitor RabbitMQ metrics , you could install the RabbitMQ HTTP Management plugin ,and then use the REST API Modular Input to monitor the management endpoints that have the metrics that you are interested in.
