RabbitMQ Review

The queuing system is the most valuable feature. The product allows for asynchronous development and horizontal scalability.


How has it helped my organization?

It allows for asynchronous development and horizontal scalability.

What is most valuable?

The queuing system is the most valuable feature. It meets our requirements.

What needs improvement?

After creating a RabbitMQ service, they provide you with a sort of web management dashboard.

The dashboard allows you see things on your queues, purge/delete queues, etc. The dashboard is pseudo-real time, refreshing every N secs/mins, specified with a drop down.

I’d like this dashboard to use web sockets, so it would actually be in real time. It would slightly increase debugging, etc.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We have not had stability issues.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We have not had scalability issues.

How is customer service and technical support?

We never used technical support.

Which solutions did we use previously?

We did not have a previous solution.

How was the initial setup?

The setup was straightforward. We are implementing using Node.js and the module we are using was easy to use.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I am not the one in charge of licenses and pricing, so I do not know anything about this.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We didn’t have any alternatives. Our company has a contract with PCF, so it was our only option.

What other advice do I have?

For Node.js development, use amqplib. It’s a really good library for RabbitMQ.
