Monitor the performance metrics of your Apache ActiveMQ instances to keep your diverse systems connected and communicating.
Apache ActiveMQ enables easy processing of messages from various applications and communicates them across your infrastructure. Install and configure the ActiveMQ plugin to get a detailed view of how your systems and services are performing, all in a single, intuitive dashboard.
This document details how to configure the ActiveMQ plugin and the monitoring metrics for providing in-depth visibility into the performance, availability, and usage stats of Apache ActiveMQ instances.
Apache ActiveMQ performance monitoring metrics:
The Site24x7 plugin collects data from the ActiveMQ REST API and visualizes it all in a single, unified dashboard. Use these key indicators to keep track of unexpected trends and ensure continued performance. Various out-of-the-box metrics we support are:
Total message count
total_message_count gives the total number of messages in the queue, including the number of enqueued and dequeued messages. The enqueue and the dequeue rate should match if the producer and active consumers are in sync
Total connections count
Both the producer and consumer have to connect to the ActiveMQ instance for posting and consuming messages respectively. total_connections_count gives the total number of connections. The performance of the ActiveMQ instance will be affected if the number of connections go beyond the server capacity
Total consumer count
Total number of consumers that have consumed the messages posted by the producers is shown by total_consumer_count
Total producer count
Total number of producers that have posted messages to the ActiveMQ instance is shown by total_producer_count
