[rabbitmq-discuss] Large number of connections

I need to have a large number of connections to the message broker,
perhaps 10,000. There is typically (on Unix) a limit of 1024 open file
descriptors per process. The number of connections may blow up by a
factor of 10 later, I'm not sure yet. How would RabbitMQ deal with
this? Multiple instances of the broker? Also, each connection will
have its own queue. Can RabbitMQ deal with tens of thousands of
queues? The total message throughput will be on the order of the
number of connections per second (several thousand per second).
