Hi Prashanth,

Please keep replies on list, as I mentioned earlier (just before 
forgetting to do some myself!). :)

Ok that's fine, but *what* about clustering do you need to prove for 
your architecture? Are you wanting to know what happens if you've got 
two nodes and one goes down? The idea is that all the relevant parts 
that should be present on all nodes, should survive a crash. As the list 
entry I referred you to in my previous mail states, you've got to be 
careful when using ram nodes, as you *can* get yourself into a situation 
where data loss is *possible* under those circumstances.

Please read the clustering guide in detail and then feel free to come 
back ask any questions. If you want to stop rabbit on a node, without 
stopping the node itself, you'd use `rabbitmqctl stop_app` or 
`rabbitmqctl stop` to stop the rabbit application *and* the node.
