RabbitMQ Valuable Features

The most valuable feature of RabbitMQ is the ability to set up workflows simply with configuration. We had some very complex problems (logging, auditing, sequential and parallel operations) that have been easily solved by inserting a queue in the middle of an existing workflow. View full review »

It has solved issues such as queue processing, real-time data processing and decrease count of Cron jobs. The management of Cron jobs is very hard for me. If you are using RabbitMQ, you may not need a Cron job since you can create a consumer for a queue and listen to the queue in real-time. For example, you need to send an email for your new members but you want to do this from your software. The reason being if you encounter an SMTP error, you should handle it or sending an email from your membership activity can take about 5-10 seconds. If you don't use RabbitMQ, you need to create a Cron job and check for new members to send an email to them. But, if you use RabbitMQ, you do not need a Cron job. You can send a message to your queue and consume it in real-time and then send the email. View full review »

RabbitMQ is a solid, widely-used messaging system with a low cost-of-ownership. It is open, but with commercial support potentially available from Pivotal There is also a strong online user community. One crucial feature was guaranteed messaging. We needed a solution that we could trust to not lose data. Its built-in clustering capability allowed us to configure it as a highly available message broker, so that we can have confidence in the resilience of our architecture. It can be scaled as well, although we have not tested this. View full review »

One of our favorite features is the exchange. The queuing out-of-the-box is awesome. Also, due to the clustering, our system was highly available. View full review »

RabbitMQ is good in its real-time capability of delivering the sensor data in different topic abstractions. It is quite easy to setup in our sensor network system which involves data monitor agents across geographically distributed organizations. View full review »

Allowing for a fully asynchronous solution is crucial for this particular feature. The seamless nature of creating and connecting to a queue makes it really easy to code and understand. Pivotal Cloud Foundry allows us to easily scale the number of consumers (or receivers) as well. So far, no hiccups have been found with the PCF implementation. View full review »

We find authentication, performance, and durable messaging the most valuable features. Due to the nature of my use case, performance and security were of the highest priority and were the main reason I chose RabbitMQ messaging frameworks. Over time, the most useful feature became the ability to create durable queues, which increased reliability and also boosted performance. View full review »
