Websockets with VerneMQ


What is VerneMQ ?

VerneMQ is an enterprise ready, high-performance, distributed MQTT message broker. It scales horizontally and vertically on commodity hardware to support a high number of concurrent publishers and consumers while maintaining low and predictable latency and fault tolerance. It plugins can be developed in Erlang, Elixir, Lua, and any programming language that can implement HTTP WebHooks. It uses modern broadcast protocols and LevelDB for state replication in a cluster. It is Open Source and Apache2 licensed.

It is first and foremost a MQTT publish/subscribe message broker which implements the OASIS industry standard MQTT protocol. But VerneMQ is also built to take messaging and IoT applications to the next level by providing a unique set of features related to scalability, reliability and high-performance as well as operational simplicity.

To achieve these goals VerneMQ is designed from the ground up to work as a distributed message broker, ensuring continued operation in the event of node or network failures and easy horizontal scalability. The underlying technology is a proven telecom grade technology stack providing a rock solid foundation for systems that must be in continuous operation around the clock. It’s also able to make efficient use of all available resources as a basis for easy vertical scalability.

It uses a master-less clustering technology. There are no special nodes like masters or slaves to consider when the inevitable infrastructure changes or maintenance windows require adding or removing nodes. This makes operating the cluster safe and simple.

MQTT 5.0 support now available.

Websockets with VerneMQ

VerneMQ supports the WebSocket protocol out of the box. To be able to open a WebSocket connection to VerneMQ, you have to configure a WebSocket listener or Secure WebSocket listener in the vernemq.conf file first:

listener.ws.default =
listener.wss.default =

Keep in mind that you’ll use MQTT-over-WebSocket, so you will need a Javascript library that implements the MQTT client behaviour. We have used the Eclipse Paho client as well as MQTT.js

You won’t be able to open WebSocket connections on a base URL, always add the /mqtt path.
