VMware RabbitMQ Room for Improvement

The user interface could be improved. We have an interface that shows the consumption rate, the number of consumers, their occupation rate. We should have a column in that interface that shows the estimated time until, at the current rate of consumption, the number of messages is to be consumed from a specific queue. That would be great. I wanted to read, however, as it is right now, JavaScript would have loaded the browser too much. Basically, I'd just like to see the consumption rate in each queue without too much fuss.

The solution could use some plugins that could be integrated into the server installation. We had a plugin that we used to delay something that from one version to the other was integrated into the server setup. Maybe it was more of an extension. However, more plugins could be also be integrated into newer versions of Rabbit.

RabbitMQ provides the ability to scale queues in a very simple and elegant way. If it had a “failure queue” with robust delivery and recovery built-in with the same power, that would be great. We use a completely different queuing system for failures. So there is a little more effort to take messages in a failure queue, analyze them, figure out what went wrong and then restart them in Rabbit. It is doable, and we do it, but if we had a round trip solution in Rabbit, that would be awesome.

For me, having a robust failure queue, is high on the list of improvements needed in the near future. This is an important update needed because right now we are using Doctrine for our failure queue. Doctrine does a great job.

One of the issues is that as soon as you go outside of a switch or not in IP address range, the clustering no longer has all the wonderful features so clustering outside of network boundaries is a problem. I'd like to see stream processing as an additional feature. Kafka has a streaming API and I'd like Rabbit to have that too.

There are some security concerns that have been raised with this product.

The configuration works with a config file, where all of the controls, including that of the administrator and user access, are stored there. The security isn't very stringent or very elaborate.
