Yes - the tests and benchmarks that you write yourself will tell you
more than anything else you come across. There don't seem to be too many
recent studies, and you may come across
which is rather out of date and many of the issues raised there have
since been fixed. (Sadly, they've not recorded which version of Rabbit
they were testing against, but I suspect it was a 1.7 or 1.8 series.)

If your issue is simply managing connections then any sort of bog
standard TCP load balancer sitting in front of a cluster of RabbitMQ
servers will do the job nicely.
