RabbitMQ synchronously consume messages

In my previous post I had described a scenario to synchronously consuming message from RabbitMQ. Here is a way to do it in python.To make things simple to understand I just wrote a dummy program that dumps the content of a RabbitMQ queue and then you can use the same program to remove a message also from queue by iterating all messages and acknowledging it. (its a dumb implementation so dont judge the coding, the intent is to demonstrate synchronous consumption of queue contents).



import sys
from amqplib import client_0_8 as amqp
messageIdToRemove = None
chan = None

def process_message(msg):
    print "================================================="
    print "Properties ="
    print msg.properties
    print "Body=" 
    print msg.body
    if op == "remove_message":
        if messageIdToRemove == msg.properties['message_id']:
            print "@@@@@@removing message@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@"
            chan.basic_ack(msg.delivery_tag)
if __name__ == '__main__':
    if len(sys.argv) < 9:
       print "Usage python list_queue_messages.py mq_url mq_user mq_pass mq_vhost mq_exchange mq_queue_name mq_routing_key [list_queue|remove_message] messageIdToRemove"
       exit()
   
    mq_url = sys.argv[1]
    mq_user = sys.argv[2]
    mq_pass = sys.argv[3]
    mq_vhost = sys.argv[4]
    mq_exchange = sys.argv[5]
    mq_queue_name = sys.argv[6]
    mq_routing_key = sys.argv[7]
    op=sys.argv[8]
    if op == "remove_message":
        messageIdToRemove=sys.argv[9]
        
    conn = amqp.Connection(host=mq_url,
                           userid=mq_user,
                           password=mq_pass,
                           virtual_host=mq_vhost,
                           insist=False);
    chan = conn.channel();
    chan.queue_declare(queue=mq_queue_name, durable=True,
        exclusive=False, auto_delete=False);
    chan.exchange_declare(exchange=mq_exchange, type="direct", durable=True,
        auto_delete=False);        
    chan.queue_bind(queue=mq_queue_name, exchange=mq_exchange,
        routing_key=mq_routing_key)

    print "Consumer dumping messages from %s" % mq_queue_name
    i=0
    try:
        while True:
            msg = chan.basic_get(mq_queue_name)
            if msg is None:
                break;
            else:
                i=i+1
                process_message(msg)            
    finally:
        chan.close();
        conn.close();
    print "There are %d messages in the queue" % i

Logging to Graphite monitoring tool from java

We use Graphite as a tool for monitoring some stats and watch trends. A requirement is to monitor impact of new releases as build is deployed to app nodes to see if things like
1) Has the memcache usage increased.
2) Has the no of Java exceptions went up.
3) Is the app using more tomcat threads.
Here is a screenshot

We changed the installer to log a deploy event when a new build is deployed. I wrote a simple spring bean to log graphite events using java. Logging to graphite is easy, all you need to do is open a socket and send lines of events.
import org.slf4j.Logger;import org.slf4j.LoggerFactory; import java.io.OutputStreamWriter; import java.io.Writer; import java.net.Socket; import java.util.HashMap; import java.util.Map; public class GraphiteLogger { private static final Logger logger = LoggerFactory.getLogger(GraphiteLogger.class); private String graphiteHost; private int graphitePort; public String getGraphiteHost() { return graphiteHost; } public void setGraphite…

Jersey posting multipart data

This took me sometime to figure out mostly it was because I was only including jersey-multipart-1.6.jar but I was not including mimepull-1.3.jar.

So the intent is to upload a file using REST api and we need pass meta attributes in addition to uploading the file. Also the intent is to stream the file instead of first storing it on the local disk. Here is some sample code.
@Path("/upload-service") public class UploadService { @Context protected HttpServletResponse response; @Context protected HttpServletRequest request; @POST @Consumes(MediaType.MULTIPART_FORM_DATA) @Produces(MediaType.APPLICATION_JSON) public String uploadFile(@PathParam("fileName") final String fileName, @FormDataParam("workgroupId") String workgroupId, @FormDataParam("userId") final int userId, @FormDataParam("content") final InputStream content) throws JSONException { //.......Upload the file to S3 or netapp or any storage service } }
Now to tes…
