Hi Timya. You are setting a local_nodename of "localhost" on both 
rabbit1 and rabbit2 - this is causing them both to identify themselves 
as the same node to hare; they then end up sharing the same upstream 
queue and thus only getting one set of messages between them.

You should either set local_nodename to something distinct on each 
downstream, or don't set it at all, and Rabbit will construct something 
from the machine's FQDN.

Cheers, Simon
