Defaults to RabbitMQ.


Defaults to the application data directory of the current user. This is the location of log and database directories.


Defaults to rabbit. This can be useful if you want to run more than one node per machine - RABBITMQ_NODENAME should be unique per erlang-node-and-machine combination. See the clustering on a single machine guide for details.


By default RabbitMQ will bind to all interfaces, on IPv4 and IPv6 if available. Set this if you only want to bind to one network interface or address family.


Defaults to 5672.


Defaults to C:\Program Files\erl5.5.5\erts-5.5.5\bin (or C:\Program Files (x86)\erl5.5.5\erts-5.5.5\bin for 64-bit environments). This is the installation location of the Erlang service manager.


Set this varable to new or reuse to have the console output from the server redirected to a file named SERVICENAME.debug in the application data directory of the user that installed the service. Under Vista this will be C:\Users\AppData\username\SERVICENAME. Under previous versions of Windows this will be C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\SERVICENAME. If RABBITMQ_CONSOLE_LOG is set to new then a new file will be created each time the service starts. If RABBITMQ_CONSOLE_LOG is set to reuse then the file will be overwritten each time the service starts. The default behaviour when RABBITMQ_CONSOLE_LOG is not set or set to a value other than new or reuse is to discard the server output.
