ActiveMQ Uses

ActiveMQ is an open source message middleware built by Apache on top the Java Messaging Service (JMS). Its primary use is to send messages between different apps. It translates messages from sender to receiver, and connects multiple clients and servers. ActiveMQ supports a high number of transport protocols, including OpenWire, WebSockets, STOMP, REST, and MQTT. Also, it provides Enterprise Features thereby enabling communication from multiple clients or servers.

Why monitor ActiveMQ?

Apache ActiveMQ is a fault-tolerant, scalable messaging system used to build real-time data pipelines. ActiveMQ also supports replications natively, and can help build streaming applications that run inside production environments.

Monitoring ActiveMQ with our quickstart shows you performance metrics and inventory data on a real-time basis, create your own custom dashboard with charts and queries, and create alert policies.
