Overview - CloudAMQP Console

Instance Details screenshot

In the Overview, you find helpful information about how to connect to your instance, including the hostname, password, and username, among other things. The data will be available when the instance is created.


The hostname of your instance.

If you have a multi-node cluster, you will see the hostname of all hosts.

The load-balanced host is a DNS load balancer in front of the cluster, and it will round robin to the different nodes automatically. If one node in a cluster goes down, it will be removed from the rotation, so the other nodes will still handle the traffic until the node is back.


Cloud and data center region.
