Yeah, that doesn't make sense to me either.

This is the only thing to leap out - you have a self compiled Erlang but 
you installed RabbitMQ using the .deb? I still don't see how that would 
be the issue though.

Anyway, I've put a management agent plugin that should handle failure to 
open /proc/<pid>/fd at:


- could you download this to 
/usr/lib/rabbitmq/lib/rabbitmq_server-2.7.0/plugins/, delete the other 
management-agent, and see if this fixes the problem?
