Amazon MQ is a managed message broker service for Apache ActiveMQ that makes it easy to migrate to a message broker in the cloud. A message broker allows software applications and components to communicate using various programming languages, operating systems, and formal messaging protocols.

Use the OpsRamp AWS public cloud integration to discover and collect metrics against the AWS service.


To set up the OpsRamp AWS integration and discover the AWS service, go to AWS Integration Discovery Profile and select Mq Broker.
