Collects data from RabbitMQ through the admin interface


** With added support for breaking down queue metrics by vhost, we have attempted to keep results generated by existing configurations from changing. This means that the old behaviour of clobbering queue metrics when a single queue name exists in multiple vhosts still exists if the configuration is not updated. If no vhosts block is defined it will also keep the metric path as it was historically with no vhost name in it.

    old path => systems.myServer.rabbitmq.queues.myQueue.*
    new path => systems.myServer.rabbitmq.myVhost.queues.myQueue.*

** If a [vhosts] section exists but is empty, then no queues will be polled. ** To poll all vhosts and all queues, add the following. ** [vhosts] ** * = * **
