The amqp_publish node

Publish data to an amqp-broker exchange. The most popular amqp-broker is RabbitMQ.

Incoming data is converted to JSON before sending.

The amqp correlation-id property will be set to phash2(routing_key + payload) using erlang's phash2 function on every published message:

The erlang documentation on phash2:

Portable hash function that gives the same hash for the same Erlang term regardless of machine architecture and ERTS version.

(phash2 outputs an integer which gets casted to a string to be used as a correlation-id)

The amqp_consume node will use this values to perform deduplication on message receiving.

Note: This node is a sink node and does not output any flow-data, therefore any node connected to it will not receive any data from this node.

Qos description consequences
0 In memory queuing of messages, in case of network issues. Does not use publisher confirm on the channel. Highest throuput.
1 On disc queuing of messages, in case of network issues. Does not use publisher confirm on the channel. Not yet published messages will survive a flow crash. At least once.
2 On disc queue + acknowledgment according to acknowledgement from the amqp broker (publisher confirm). Most safe data delivery. Aims at exactly once semantics.
