activemq-cli

Command-line tool (Windows/macOS/Linux) to interact with a JMX enabled Apache ActiveMQ message broker.

Your broker is not JMX enabled? Check out amazonmq-cli.

alt text Here is a three minute video that shows how to install, configure and use ActiveMQ CLI.

Installation

Download activemq-cli in the release section of this repository.

Unzip the activemq-cli-x.x.x.zip file and configure the broker you want to connect to in activemq-cli-x.x.x/conf/activemq-cli.config:

broker {
  local {
    amqurl = "tcp://localhost:61616"
    jmxurl = "service:jmx:rmi:///jndi/rmi://localhost:1099/jmxrmi"
    username = ""
    password = ""
    prompt-color = "light-blue" 
  }

  // add additional brokers here
  dev {
    amqurl = "tcp://development-server:61616"
    jmxurl = "service:jmx:rmi:///jndi/rmi://development-server:1099/jmxrmi"
    username = "admin"
    password = "admin"		
  }	
  
  prod {
    amqurl = "tcp://production-server:61616"
    jmxurl = "service:jmx:rmi:///jndi/rmi://production-server:1099/jmxrmi"
  }	
  
  fuse-server {
    amqurl = "tcp://fuse-server:61616"
    jmxurl = "service:jmx:rmi:///jndi/rmi://fuse-server:1099/karaf-root"  
  }
  
  ssl-server {
    amqurl = "ssl://ssl-server:61616"
    jmxurl = "service:jmx:rmi:///jndi/rmi://ssl-server:1099/jmxrmi"
    
    // SSL 
    keyStore = "~/client.ks"
    keyStorePassword = "secret"
    trustStore = "~/client.ts"
  }  
}

Usage

To enter the activemq-cli shell run activemq-cli-x.x.x/bin/activemq-cli or activemq-cli-x.x.x/bin/activemq-cli.bat if you are using Windows.
