Synopsis

rabbitmq-server [-detached]

Description

RABBITMQ-SERVER(8)        BSD System Manager's Manual       RABBITMQ-SERVER(8)

NAME
     rabbitmq-server -- start RabbitMQ AMQP server

SYNOPSIS
     rabbitmq-server [-detached]

DESCRIPTION
     RabbitMQ is an implementation of AMQP, the emerging standard for high
     performance enterprise messaging.  The RabbitMQ server is a robust and
     scalable implementation of an AMQP broker.

     Running rabbitmq-server in the foreground displays a banner message, and
     reports on progress in the startup sequence, concluding with the message
     "broker running", indicating that the RabbitMQ broker has been started
     successfully.  To shut down the server, just terminate the process or use
     rabbitmqctl(8).

ENVIRONMENT
     RABBITMQ_MNESIA_BASE
             Defaults to /var/lib/rabbitmq/mnesia.  Set this to the directory
             where Mnesia database files should be placed.

     RABBITMQ_LOG_BASE
             Defaults to /var/log/rabbitmq.  Log files generated by the server
             will be placed in this directory.

     RABBITMQ_NODENAME
             Defaults to "rabbit".  This can be useful if you want to run more
             than one node per machine - RABBITMQ_NODENAME should be unique
             per erlang-node-and-machine combination.  See the clustering on a
             single machine guide:
                   http://www.rabbitmq.com/clustering.html#single-machine
             for details.

     RABBITMQ_NODE_IP_ADDRESS
             By default RabbitMQ will bind to all interfaces, on IPv4 and IPv6
             if available.  Set this if you only want to bind to one network
             interface or address family.

     RABBITMQ_NODE_PORT
             Defaults to 5672.

OPTIONS
     --detached
             Start the server process in the background.  Note that this will
             cause the pid not to be written to the pid file.

             For example, runs RabbitMQ AMQP server in the background:

                   rabbitmq-server -detached
