The rabbitmq-management plugin provides an HTTP-based API for management and monitoring of your RabbitMQ server. RabbitMQ is an open-source message-broker software that originally implemented the Advanced Message Queuing protocol and has since been extended with a plug-in architecture to support Streaming Text Oriented Messaging Protocol, MQ Telemetry Transport, and other protocols.
