RabbitMQ Review
It allows developers to focus on application functionality without having to re-invent interprocess communication.


Valuable Features:

The most valuable feature is it’s robustness. Message queues need to be extremely reliable as they are the glue between system components.

Also, the speed is important and its good scaling capabilities.

Improvements to My Organization:

It allows developers to focus on application functionality without having to re-invent interprocess communication, which is difficult.

I also allows us to develop smaller, more efficient, and less complex subcomponents of a larger application.

Room for Improvement:

I would like to see better documentation on how to set up complex webs of RabbitMQ servers — master/slave, multi-master, etc.

Use of Solution:

I have been using RabbitMQ for 7+ years.

Stability Issues:

We have not encountered any stability issues.

Scalability Issues:

We have not encountered any scalability issues.

Previous Solutions:

We were using IBM MQ, but it was too costly and not open source.

Initial Setup:

The initial setup was simple for my applications, but I have not used RabbitMQ on a complex project that would require clusters of servers.

Other Advice:

My advice is to read the message boards and play with the API.

Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
