The backlog isn't in the queues, it's in the various buffers prior to 
that. And publishing a message to node1 when it needs to go into a queue 
on node2 is more expensive than publishing the same message to node2.

That may simply be too high a rate in your setup. If this is just a 
test, try reducing the rate to, say 1k/s and check whether the memory 
usage is more stable.

Note that nothing really bad should happen in any case. As I explained 
in my previous reply, eventually the memory alarm will trigger and 
rabbit will pause producers to allow the backlog to shrink.
