Batch operations are normally useful in a protocol with synchrnous
operations, so that rather than having to wait for a response on each
operation, a client can perform many operations and only wait for one

But the publish and consume operations in AMQP are not synchronous, so
it's not clear what efficiency improvements could be allowed by batch

See the clustering guide at <http://www.rabbitmq.com/clustering.html>.
If you are interested in clustering, you probably also want to look at
the active/passive failover guide at
