Which version of RabbitMQ are you using? "rabbitmq.cfg" isn't a file
name that I recognise - I think you mean "rabbitmq.config", and indeed
that's the file name that the shovel README talks about:

The bind will look something like:

       [{exchange, <<"my_exchange">>},
        {queue,    <<"my_queue">>},
        {arguments, [{"x-match",         longstr, "any"},
                     {"headerName",      longstr, "headerValue"},
                     {"otherHeaderName", longstr, "otherHeaderValue"}]}]}

I think.
