You have not provided enough information to venture a diagnosis. Is 
there anything in the broker logfile around the time when connections 
become blocked? Does "rabbitmqctl list_connections" return the expected 
number of connections? (And does this agree with the number of 
connections reported by netstat?)

Are there any network devices between the broker and the clients that 
could be interfering with the traffic? Does turning on AMQP heartbeats 
make any difference?
