It turns out that I was running the broker using 32 bit binary, that is why the 
memory limit is 40% * 4GB = 1.6 GB.  the broker would crash if there are more 
than 50 GB of messages in 1000 queues.  When this happened, the  memory usage 
reached 4 GB.
If I run the broker using 64 bit,  it does not crash because it could get more 
than 6 GB of memory.   It was able to consume all the messages at rate of 
100-200 MB/sec.
