Scaling RabbitMQ to 11

A session at Surge 2011

Friday 30th September, 2011

1:30pm to 2:30pm (EST)

At myYearbook.com we use RabbitMQ as the core messaging platform for remote asynchronous task processing, cross-application communication and general information routing and delivery. Pushing RabbitMQ's limits in scaling has provided good insight in how to scale RabbitMQ clusters while avoiding RabbitMQ's common pitfalls.

In this talk we will cover RabbitMQ basics including common message routing patterns, clustering, monitoring and management. myYearbook's use of and integrations with RabbitMQ will be covered, reviewing the bottlenecks we encountered and the strategies we used to keep scaling RabbitMQ to 11. In addition we will cover alternative methods for message publishing such as web application message publishing over HTTP to RabbitMQ using the JSON-RPC-Channel plugin.
