brokerlso is a small library to create parts of Qpid Management Framework (QMF) version 2 messages.

Legacy qpid-python and associated packages provided the ability to manage an Apache Qpid broker. The newer AMQP messaging toolkit, Qpid Proton, does not provide the same level of functionality.

brokerlso plugs in the gap by being focused solely on creating the parts of an AMQP message that relate to QMF commands.

Look at tests and examples for more information on how to use brokerlso.


Why brokerlso? It has two parts: Broker and LSO. Broker refers to the Apache Qpid broker. LSO refers to Landing Signal Officer. brokerlso is meant to create QMFv2 messages to manage a Qpid broker.


Main development is done on GitHub and the issue tracker is also there. Repo is mirrored on GitLab and BitBucket, and contributions in any of these places are welcome.


Distributed under the terms of the MIT license brokerlso is free and open source software.
