Functions to operate on Queues.

Link to this section Summary

Functions

Binds a Queue to an Exchange.

Returns a number of active consumers on the queue.

Declares a queue. The optional queue parameter is used to set the name. If set to an empty string (default), the server will assign a name.

Deletes a Queue by name.

Returns true if queue is empty (has no messages ready), false otherwise.

Returns the number of messages that are ready for delivery (e.g. not pending acknowledgements) in the queue.

Discards all messages in the Queue.

Returns the message count and consumer count for the given queue. Uses declare/3 with the :passive option set.

Convenience to consume messages from a Queue.

Unbinds a Queue from an Exchange.

Stops the consumer identified by consumer_tag from consuming.

bind(channel, queue, exchange, options \\ [])

View Source

Specs

Binds a Queue to an Exchange.

Options

  • :routing_key - The routing key used to bind the queue to the exchange. Defaults to "".
  • :no_wait - If true, the binding is not synchronous. Defaults to false.
  • :arguments - A list of arguments to pass when binding (of type AMQP.arguments/0). See the README for more information. Defaults to [].

consumer_count(channel, queue)

View Source

Specs

consumer_count(AMQP.Channel.t(), AMQP.Basic.queue()) :: integer() | no_return()

Returns a number of active consumers on the queue.

declare(channel, queue \\ "", options \\ [])

View Source

Specs

declare(AMQP.Channel.t(), AMQP.Basic.queue(), keyword()) ::
  {:ok, map()} | AMQP.Basic.error()

Declares a queue. The optional queue parameter is used to set the name. If set to an empty string (default), the server will assign a name.

Besides the queue name, the following options can be used:

Options

  • :durable - If set, keeps the Queue between restarts of the broker. Defaults to false.
  • :auto_delete - If set, deletes the Queue once all subscribers disconnect. Defaults to false.
  • :exclusive - If set, only one subscriber can consume from the Queue. Defaults to false.
  • :passive - If set, raises an error unless the queue already exists. Defaults to false.
  • :no_wait - If set, the declare operation is asynchronous. Defaults to false.
  • :arguments - A list of arguments to pass when declaring (of type AMQP.arguments/0). See the README for more information. Defaults to [].

delete(channel, queue, options \\ [])

View Source

Specs

delete(AMQP.Channel.t(), AMQP.Basic.queue(), keyword()) ::
  {:ok, map()} | AMQP.Basic.error()

Deletes a Queue by name.

Options

  • :if_unused - If set, the server will only delete the queue if it has no consumers. If the queue has consumers, it's not deleted and an error is returned.
  • :if_empty - If set, the server will only delete the queue if it has no messages.
  • :no_wait - If set, the delete operation is asynchronous.

Specs

Returns true if queue is empty (has no messages ready), false otherwise.

message_count(channel, queue)

View Source

Specs

message_count(AMQP.Channel.t(), AMQP.Basic.queue()) :: integer() | no_return()

Returns the number of messages that are ready for delivery (e.g. not pending acknowledgements) in the queue.

Specs

purge(AMQP.Channel.t(), AMQP.Basic.queue()) :: {:ok, map()} | AMQP.Basic.error()

Discards all messages in the Queue.

Specs

status(AMQP.Channel.t(), AMQP.Basic.queue()) ::
  {:ok, map()} | AMQP.Basic.error()

Returns the message count and consumer count for the given queue. Uses declare/3 with the :passive option set.

subscribe(channel, queue, fun, options \\ [])

View Source

Specs

subscribe(
  AMQP.Channel.t(),
  AMQP.Basic.queue(),
  (String.t(), map() -> any()),
  keyword()
) :: {:ok, String.t()} | AMQP.Basic.error()

Convenience to consume messages from a Queue.

The handler function must have arity 2 and will receive as arguments a binary with the message payload and a Map with the message properties.

The consumed message will be acknowledged after executing the handler function. If an exception is raised by the handler function, the message is rejected.

This convenience function will spawn a process and register it using AMQP.Basic.consume.

unbind(channel, queue, exchange, options \\ [])

View Source

Specs

Unbinds a Queue from an Exchange.

Options

  • :routing_key - The routing queue for removing the binding. Defaults to "".
  • :arguments - A list of arguments to pass when unbinding (of type AMQP.arguments/0). See the README for more information. Defaults to [].

unsubscribe(channel, consumer_tag)

Specs

Stops the consumer identified by consumer_tag from consuming.

Internally just calls AMQP.Basic.cancel/2.
