Hey everyone

I am using RabbitMQ for a project and recently rabbitmq-server is
crashing after some time.

I am merely using 3 queues to distribute work among processes. no fancy

The /var/log/rabbitmw/shutdown_err is empty and the other logfiles have
no hints either.

A possible reason might be that one of the queues is growing beyond
allowed memory size. But shouldn't that cause a log entry of some kind?

I am accessing the queue with perl using Net::RabbitMQ from CPAN
