given a score based on how well
the author has formatted their
code and documentation and
modules are also checked for
malware using VirusTotal.

Install and enable RabbitMQ.

  • rabbitmq : Class to install and enable the server.

If you are looking for a more complete module, check out the official PuppetLabs RabbitMQ module. This module is made to be minimalistic, with few external requirements : stdlib, selinux (optional), nothing more.

It has been initially tested only with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.


include '::rabbitmq'

Once the RabbitMQ server is up and running, it initially needs to be manually configured. This is where other modules might go beyond this basic one. See rabbitmqctl(1) for more information.

If you already have an existing configuration, you should be able to pass it as-is using source or content type parameters, with your own files or templates (here we use an included example cluster template ) :

$cluster_nodes = [ 'rabbit@node1', 'rabbit@node2' ]
class { '::rabbitmq':
  rabbitmq_config_content => template('rabbitmq/rabbitmq.config-cluster.erb'),
  rabbitmq_env            => {
    'NODENAME'     => "rabbit@${::hostname}.example.lan",
    'USE_LONGNAME' => 'true',
  enabled_plugins         => [ 'rabbitmq_management' ],
