Comparison with RabbitMQ Web Console

What does QueueExplorer offer that is not available from RabbitMQ Web Console?

Explorer-like operations

  • View messages - QueueExplorer immediately loads and displays queue messages.
  • Move and copy multiple messages between queues using drag&drop or clipboard operations.
  • Delete multiple messages - with RabbitMQ console you can delete messages from the top of the queue. QueueExplorer allows you to delete any messages, even using sorting and filtering to help you select them.
  • Save/load - one or several messages can be selected at once and saved to single file. Messages can be loaded later to the same or another queue, on the same or different computer. This is great for backup purposes or for saving messages for later testing.
  • Reorder - send message to back of queue. Great for poison messages - move it to the back and let pending messages be processed - and deal with poison one latter.
  • Sort messages by any available field.
  • Filtering messages by any field.
  • Connect to multiple RabbitMQ servers
  • Group servers
  • Tabbed interface
  • Custom folders (PRO)

Schema (metadata) features (PRO)

  • Export/import definitions of queueing objects - queues, exchanges, vhosts, bindings, policies.
  • Copy/paste definitions of queueing objects.
  • Compare schemas you can compare imported schema without applying changes.

Performance testing

  • Bulk sender - easily send thousands of messages for performance and scalability testing, with adjustable delay after each message.
