RabbitMQ Random Exchange Type

This exchange type is for load-balancing among consumers. It's basically a direct exchange, with the exception that, instead of each consumer bound to that exchange with the same routing key getting a copy of the message, the exchange type randomly selects a queue to route to.

There is no weighting or anything, so maybe load "balancing" might be a bit of a misnomer. It uses Erlang's crypto:rand_uniform/2 function, if you're interested.

Installation

git clone git://github.com/jbrisbin/random-exchange.git
cd random-exchange
make package
cp dist/*.ez $RABBITMQ_HOME/plugins

Usage

To use it, declare an exchange of type "x-random".
