This is my biggest concern.

Look about this scenario I have one Exchange and one persistent queue.I'm
posting transient messages to this Exchange (to get better performance) if
my Exchanges messages are in buffer and server crash I will be loose all
messages in buffer and it is a big problem.... I cannot lose any messages,
this messages are business it represent money, so if I loose one we loose
money and It cannot happen, in other way I need to be the fastest we
need overrides in nanoseconds or 1 millisecond is the limit, so post
messages in persistent queue is out of the scope, or  have one way to be
fast with persistent ?

My questions is, looking for this requirements (don't loose any message and
be fastest) RabbitMQ attend this ? Have a way to attend this requirements ?
