[rabbitmq-discuss] RabbitMQ general and cluster doubts

Dear RabbitMQ members,

We're testing a two nodes cluster running RabbitMQ (2.6.1) and we don't
understand the cluster benefits beyond having a shared knowledge about the
metadata, as queues are sticky to the node upon which they are created,
queues are limited to node's hardware capabilities (CPU, Memory, Disk,
...). Can you explain us the cluster benefits? After adding another node to
the cluster, is there any way to rebalance the existing queues among all

We're planning to set up about 30.000 queues and 100.000.000 messages with
an average of 1 Kb each, every time a message is consumed it reenters the
corresponding queue until it's deleted. What do you think?

Looking forward to hearing from you.
