Error messages from the client? Anything in the server-side logs?

The status plugin is ancient and has been superseded by the management 
plugin. The management plugin for RabbitMQ 2.2.0 is available from


but 2.2.0 is quite old and the management plugin was quite crude at that 
point. I would suggest you upgrade to RabbitMQ 2.8.2 and enable 
management as described at http://www.rabbitmq.com/plugins.html

I think rabbitmqadmin needs Python 2.6 at least. Python 2.4 is 
definitely too old.
