Logging and monitoring

Amazon MQ broker doesn’t have log exports feature


Amazon MQ is a managed message broker service for Apache ActiveMQ and RabbitMQ that allows setting up and operating message brokers. It was detected that MQ broker {AwsMqBroker} doesn't have log exports feature, therefore logging data is not published to Amazon CloudWatch logs. Without log exports, it may be harder to monitor broker activity.
  • Recommended Mitigation

    It is recommended to enable log exports when creating MQ broker, or to reconfigure the logs if the broker already exist, by choosing the relevant broker -> 'Edit' -> under 'CloudWatch Logs' mark the boxes of 'General' and 'Audit'.
