When a message is received, the worker must do some updates in database and must send a message to a specific exchange as confirmation of job completed. When the issue appears some of the workers do this job and some of them do not. All the workers are logging warnings or errors when:
- bad message is received (i.e. it could not be JSON-decoded),
- getting any SQL error during transaction,
- getting any AMQP exception,
- worker is disconnected from RabbitMQ or SQL server.

If a message is received and successfully processed, no logging made.
