ActiveMQ Review

The product provides message-level acknowledging and message persistency.


What is most valuable?

Most valuable to us are fast asynchronous message queuing with message-level acknowledging and message persistency.

How has it helped my organization?

ActiveMQ operates as the message bus across single-purpose components. Thanks to ActiveMQ, the system is able to scale its heavy computing components during traffic peaks.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see improvement in the clustering brokers. Configuring ActiveMQ brokers for working in a cluster is difficult and has many constraints. Also, the configuration files are not intuitive.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using ActiveMQ for about 6 years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We have not encountered any stability issues.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The only issue we had concerned the practical limit of 2000 messages per broker, per second. The next step, which is multiplying brokers, worked well though.

How is customer service and technical support?

I have not used technical support so far.

How was the initial setup?

Initial setup is quite complex when done for a high performance system. The configuration files are not intuitive.
