If you say the queue is responding intermittently, what do you mean
exactly? Are you measuring latency between publish and deliver, or
The broker does not impose a fixed limit on the number of subscribers to
a queue, but the server capacity may be a limit.
It is possible that the problem is caused by some behaviour of the
clients, or a difference in pre-fetch count. Do you get more comparable
performance if you set the pre-fetch count to 3 on the "intermittent" queue?
Depending on what you are measuring you may wish to enable the firehose
tracer for debugging:
