Scale applications based on ActiveMQ Queue.

Availability: v2.6+ Maintainer: Community

Trigger Specification

This specification describes the activemq trigger that scales based on a ActiveMQ Queue.

triggers:
- type: activemq
  metadata:
    managementEndpoint: "activemq.activemq-test:8161"
    destinationName: "testQueue"
    brokerName: "activemq_broker"
    targetQueueSize: "100"

Parameter list:

  • managementEndpoint - ActiveMQ management endpoint in format: <hostname>:<port>.
  • destinationName - Name of the queue to check for the message count.
  • brokerName - Name of the broker as defined in ActiveMQ.
  • targetQueueSize - Target value for queue length passed to the scaler. The scaler will cause the replicas to increase if the queue message count is greater than the target value per active replica. (Default: 10, Optional)
  • restAPITemplate - Template to build REST API url to get queue size. (Default: "http://{{.ManagementEndpoint}}/api/jolokia/read/org.apache.activemq:type=Broker,brokerName={{.BrokerName}},destinationType=Queue,destinationName={{.DestinationName}}/QueueSize", Optional)
  • corsHeader - Value to populate the Origin header field for CORS filtering. (Default: "http://<<managmentEndpoint>>", Optional)

Parameter Requirements:

  • In case of restAPITemplate parameter is not used, parameters resolving the REST API Template are all required: managementEndpoint, destinationName, brokerName.
  • ActiveMQ Scaler polls the ActiveMQ REST API to monitor message count of target queue. Currently, the scaler supports basic authentication. username and password are required. See Authentication Parameters below.

Authentication Parameters

You can authenticate by using username and password via TriggerAuthentication configuration.

Username and Password based Authentication:

  • username - Username for connect to the management endpoint of ActiveMQ.
  • password - Password for connect to the management endpoint of ActiveMQ.
