#OSCON – AMQP in Production: Building a High Performance Compute Cluster

leave a comment »

  • Presenter: Nicholas Silva, Box
  • Not going to discuss how they decided on RabbitMQ at Box.  But briefly: low latency, high throughput, high reliability, open source, and AMQP libraries for pretty much every platform.
  • Topic exchanges allow for more complicated routing to queues, rather than pushing directly to a queue.
  • Demo of how easily you can get up and running RabbitMQ – yup, that’s easy.
  • For PHP folks making long-poll requests, take a look at rabbitmq_shovel and just run another rabbitmq instance on the webserver.
  • Monitoring with Nagios plugin for rabbitmq
  • Metrics and trending with OpenTSDB
  • Using an exchange for analytics info
  • Over the last year, have introduced clustering and HA queues
  • Need to distribute over more datacentres? Federation Exchanges and Shovel
  • Worker crash recovery mostly works…  but if you have a huge job that kills a worker, it’ll kill the rest of the workers too.
  • Messages are opaque, so you can’t see into them – which you may find problematic at times.
