To adhere to AWS best practices, enhance performance and security, and take advantage of the latest features of ActiveMQ, ensure that your Amazon MQ brokers are using the most up-to-date version of the Apache ActiveMQ broker engine. The Amazon MQ service relies on the Apache ActiveMQ software to run message brokers, and updating to the latest version offers numerous benefits, such as improved memory management, better resource utilization, bug fixes, security patches, and support for new broker instance types.
To ensure that your Amazon MQ brokers are using the latest version of the Apache ActiveMQ broker engine, you can take the following remediation steps:
- Check the current version of the Apache ActiveMQ broker engine used by your Amazon MQ brokers.
- Compare the current version to the latest available version of the Apache ActiveMQ broker engine.
- If the current version is not the latest version, update the Amazon MQ brokers to use the latest version of the Apache ActiveMQ broker engine.
- Verify that the Amazon MQ brokers are using the latest version of the Apache ActiveMQ broker engine after the update.
- Monitor the Amazon MQ brokers to ensure they are functioning properly after the update.
