    Hi all,

    Has anyone successfully implemented RabbitMQ Monitoring using the EPAgent python script uploaded in the Community Documents?

    Hi Geethu,

    What is your exact problem?

    Regs,

    Hello Florian,

    I have deployed your plugin in our test environment, in general it works Ok (as long as you have on Node); we have 4 Nodes in out test environment, and Rabbit MQ plugin is showing just 1.

    python /apps/admcaw/install/epagent/epaplugins/RabbitMQ/rabbitmqadmin.py --host=MQ1 --port=15672 \
    --format=nodes list nodes | grep name | egrep -v "auth|exchange|applications"
    
    RabbitMQ|Nodes|rabbit@rmqmsgper04:name=rabbit@rmqmsg04
    RabbitMQ|Nodes|rabbit@rmqmsgper04:name=rabbit@rmqmsg03
    RabbitMQ|Nodes|rabbit@rmqmsgper04:name=rabbit@rmqmsg02
    RabbitMQ|Nodes|rabbit@rmqmsgper04:name=rabbit@rmqmsg01
     
    But Introscope console just shows the First Node (and Details for that Nodes); other Nodes dont show up...
     
    I am not sure if you have noticed this in your environment.... let me know if there's any changes that i would need to do in EP agent to get these 4 Nodes Reporting.
     
     
    Additionally, would you be able to share a screen shot of your Rabbit MQ Dashboard?
     
    Thanks
    Ashish

    Hi Ashish,

    I just posted the fieldpack, I did not write it, so unfortunately I can’t offer you any kind of help there, maybe someone else will chime in.

    Thanks Hiko,

    i think the plugin is having issues digesting the following (one of them).

    It is not able to digest these special characters included in the text.

    Hi all,

    I too faced similar issue in getting the metrics in Investigator tree. I had only one  node but two queues in it .The Investigator was showing only 1 queue. Also , the channels had their names were in the form of IP addresses. The logs had the below errors :

    Metric name from plugin 'Plugin RABBIT_CHANNEL' is invalid: Metric_Name_Is_Badly_Formed[RabbitMQ|Channels|127.0.0.1:49761 -> 127.0.0.1:5672 (1)]

    I am very new to RabbitMQ , so I am not sure about the standard naming convention of RabbitMQ Channels and whether we can change it to custom names which are not in IP addresss format.

    Geethu

    I tend to avoid Python like the plague so please bear with me while I figure out how to parse through the data.



  • 10.  RE: [CA APM General Discussion] RE: RabbitMQ Monitoring

    Posted 04-14-2014 05:05 PM

    Here's what I'm going to do:

    Write a Perl (yes, Perl) plug-in which consumes to the Python output from the admin script.

    Why? Because we have invested in Perl and already have a module which can present the data in a format usable by EPAgent.

    So I'll spend less time fighting with Python and it's formatting issues and Perl deal with it.



  • 11.  RE: [CA APM General Discussion] RE: RabbitMQ Monitoring

    Posted 04-14-2014 05:09 PM

    Is this output from the modified admin script? If so, would you mind running it again using the default one from RabbitMQ?

    If you don't want to post the output, please send it to me via direct message.



  • 12.  RE: [CA APM General Discussion] RE: RabbitMQ Monitoring

    Posted 04-15-2014 02:59 PM

    For each row of output, what things do you want sent to APM?

    Please let me know so I can finish working on this.



  • 13.  RE: [CA APM General Discussion] RE: [CA APM General Discussion] RE: RabbitM

    Posted 04-15-2014 03:30 PM
    I believe what we need is if they are multiple Nodes and Exchange listings and channels, it should just show up in APM…

    Very basic

    I'm actually looking at it right now. cheeky

    You do realize that much of the data will be string data, so it won't persist in SmartStor. Please help me out and for each output type, show me which pieces of information you would like to display.

    Hi Hiko,
    I believe all those BIG string data could be removed, like Applications have a big string…

    At the end of if It should closely match what we can see on Rabbit MQ Dashboard (on the admin node).

    I will send u the commands and extracts… is there a direct email I can send u that? Please email my @ ashish.vashisht@emc.com

    Thanks again for the assist!

    I'm walking through the output files now to figure out the parsing scheme.



  • 24.  RE: [CA APM General Discussion] RE: [CA APM General Discussion] RE: [CA APM

    Posted 04-25-2014 12:16 AM

    What I'm attaching is just part of the entire solution.

    This is to parse the queue information. Please place this in your EPA according to my instructions and run it from the commandline. Please provide the output of the execution so I can validate the results.

    This solution I'm providing will probably continue to be multiple plugins, which make it easier for you to manage as things change with RabbitMQ.



  • 25.  RE: [CA APM General Discussion] RE: [CA APM General Discussion] RE: [CA APM

    Posted 04-25-2014 12:10 PM

    Thanks for getting this together!  I have not have a chance to test the script yet, but on line 44 you will need to alter the following.

    use GetOpt::Long;

    to be

    use Getopt::Long;

    I believe this will be case sensitive in perl.

    Thanks!  The scripts look good, although I am having some trouble getting them to run in the epagent.  I'm getting the error below in the logs.  I'm not sure why.  When I kick off each script via command line they work, but when I run it in the EPAgent, I get errors for invalid Metric names as the metrics are already in use by another DataRecorder of a different type.  Not sure what the problem is.  

    Also, I think it was just my system, but I had to add the absalute path to the execCommand line.  I was getting an error below when I would run it in the EPAgent, but not at the command line.  Adding the absalute path in fixed that issue for me.

    python: can't open file './rabbitmqadmin.py': [Errno 2] No such file or directory  
    
    $execCommand="python $rabbitmqadmin --host=$rmqHost --port=$rmqPort --format=bindings list bindings";

    to look like

     $execCommand="python <EPAgentHome/epaplugins/RabbitMQ/rabbitmqadmin.py> --host=$rmqHost --port=$rmqPort --format=bindings list bindings";
     
    Here is the error I havn't been able to fix in the epa.log output.

    Thanks for the updates, James!

    You need to completely shut down the agent before adding new plug-ins, especially if you change the metric type.

    As for the path issue: what does the script return from this line in the code:

    $rabbitmqadmin = File::Spec->catfile(File::Spec->curdir(), "rabbitmqadmin.py");

    Do a "print" on "$rabbitmqadmin". File::Spec should return the entire path; if it doesn't then i'll need to fix that. I was trying my best to make it easier on everyone who wanted to use the solution.

    I can certainly switch to use 'Cwd' to make it provide the absolute path.

    I was getting this error with the new set of files.

    Just to keep everyone up to date, I'm working directly with James to continue development.

    As for his issue with file path, it is easily corrected by adding "epaplugins" as another directory level to be concatenated with the file.

    I will update this in the final version of the plugins.

    I also need you to show me what commands you executed to create each output file as these will be used inside the plug-in.

    Best Answer

    Posted 05-07-2014 03:39 PM

    It's done!

    I have rewritten everything from scratch. You can get a copy by going to the community Documents > Tools > EPAgent Scripts > Rabbit MQ.

    Or you can go here: http://goo.gl/C8Q2k1

    Thanks to James Sweeney for all his help.

    Hi,

     

    Where can i find the document ? 
    (community Documents > Tools > EPAgent Scripts > Rabbit MQ - i did not find it  or http://goo.gl/C8Q2k1which is not working )

     

    Thanks

    Posted 04-13-2017 06:40 AM

    You can download this from the A PM Marketplace (http://marketplace.ca.com/apm).

     

    I will tell you right now that if you're using a version newer than what I had written it for, it may not work properly for some things due to changes from RabbitMQ. If this is the case, please post a new discussion on APM-DEV (http://bit.ly/caapm_dev) so I can address the problem.

    Thanks,

    We already upgrade to last version of rabbitMQ, so as you mention it does not woks correctly.

     

    We made the change and now the scripts working .

    Go to my repo at https://github.com/htdavis/rabbitmq and download the latest version.

    If you don't have File::Slurp installed, you can comment it out.

     

    Make sure you read the POD statement in my code concerning why it's used and how to disable it.

    Which version of RMQ are you using?

    Make sure you have the latest 1.2 release from my repo or get the older one if you're using RMQ 3.3.4.
