RabbitMQ Firehose

Enable/disable RabbitMQ tracing/firehose from the CloudAMQP Console

Sometimes, during development or debugging, it's useful to be able to see every message that is published, and every message that is delivered. RabbitMQ has a "firehose" feature, where the administrator can enable (on a per-node, per-vhost basis) an exchange to which publish- and delivery-notifications should be CCed. These notifications are close to what's happening on the wire - for example you will see unacked messages. When the feature is switched off, it has no effect on performance; when it is switched on, performance will drop somewhat due to additional messages being generated and routed. RabbitMQ docs

You find this feature in the "Nodes" tab.
