IDE/Open source tools to browse Solace queues/topics

Options

Hello - I am new to solace. can you pls suggest the best tool to browse the topics/queues and message content without reading it for debugging purpose? My message payload is simple key/value and nothing fancy. I can write a java client to browse but I am just trying to see if there are any opensource tools available in the market. Appreciate your help.

    Hi @solacenewbie , welcome to the Community!

    Standard option is JMSToolbox: https://github.com/jmstoolbox/jmstoolbox

    Also, you can use Solace's command line tool SdkPerf, which you can download from here: https://solace.com/downloads/?fwp_downloads_types=other

    ./sdkperf_java.sh -cip=localhost -cu=aaron@default -sql=q/trans/rdp -qb -md -q
    
    

    AKA:

    • connect IP address: localhost
    • connect username/VPN: aaron @ "default" Message VPN
    • subscribe to queue: q/trans/rdp
    • enable queue browsing
    • dump messages
    • quiet mode (doesn't show current message rates in/out

    Also very cool: one of our Solace Community members contributed this Chrome plugin to extend Solace's PubSub+Manager GUI tool to pull the message payload data from the queue. https://github.com/solacecommunity/solace-queue-browser-extension
