I understand that, but isn't it against the erlang's philosophy of
creating lightweight processes on demand and let them die after they are

I am not an erlang coder at all, I just try to get into RabbitMQ
structure to get knowledge about it. However there's no 'RabbitMQ
Internals' documented so I have to study *.erl files :)

thank you

Most rabbit erlang processes will hibernate when they have been idle for

a while, in order to conserve memory.
