I'm looking for a simple way to monitor RabbitMQ queues from SCOM. In particular, I want to be notified when a particular queue (one we use for "dead letters") is not empty.
RabbitMQ has a RESTful web API (the RabbitMQ Management HTTP API) that will return the desired data; it only supports JSON. I've already wrapped the call to that in a .NET library. I've written a PowerShell script to interface between that and SCOM, but our network administrator can't get it to work. He'd prefer a VBScript solution.
I can expose the .NET library to COM and call that from VBScript. This seems absurdly complex. Is there a simpler way?
