Rebooting an Amazon MQ broker

To apply a new configuration to a broker, you can reboot the broker.


If your ActiveMQ broker becomes unresponsive, you can reboot it to recover from a faulty state.

The following example shows how you can reboot an Amazon MQ broker using the Amazon Web Services Management Console.

To Reboot an Amazon MQ Broker

  1. Sign in to the Amazon MQ console.

  2. From the broker list, choose the name of your broker (for example, MyBroker).

  3. On the MyBroker page, choose Actions, Reboot broker.


    Single instance brokers will be offline while being rebooted. Cluster brokers will be available, but each node is rebooted one at a time.

  4. In the Reboot broker dialog box, choose Reboot.

    Rebooting a broker takes about 5 minutes. If the reboot includes instance size changes or is performed on a broker with high queue depth, the rebooting process can take longer.
