In order to avoid message loss, some redundancy is required. That cannot
come for free, so there is necessarily some impact on performance. I
suggest you give the new active-active HA a try:
http://www.rabbitmq.com/ha.html. This is reasonably well tuned and
scales well, e.g. you can set up a cluster of N nodes, with each queue
being mirrored to just two of the nodes.
