Node.js Interface for RabbitMQ Management Statistics

This package creates an easy interface for getting statistics from a RabbitMQ instance with the management plugin installed. Read more about the management plugin here:


You will need:

  1. An instance of RabbitMQ (running locally or in the cloud)
  2. The Management Plugin


npm install amqp-stats


Require the amqp-stats package:

var AMQPStats = require('amqp-stats');

Instantiate and provide authentication details (defaults to standard setup for a local instance).

var stats = new AMQPStats({
  username: "AMQP_USERNAME", // default: guest
  password: "AMQP_PASSWORD", // default: guest
  hostname: "AMQP_HOSTNAME",  // default: localhost:55672
  protocol: "HTTP_OR_HTTPS"  // default: http

NOTE: for RabbitMQ instances running on heroku, the hostname should look something like:

From there you can use the stats instance to get data about your system's usage:

stats.overview(function(err, res, data){
  if (err) { throw err; }
  console.log('data: ', data);

This will return a list of your queues with lots of data about their rate of use, total messages sent, etc:


Note that when you lack admin privileges (on heroku instances for example) you may not be able to get at certain parts of this API. You can check your status with:
