That looks like a perfectly healthy rabbit.

There are no user-defined exchanges, queues or bindings - is that expected?

In your original email you said that "all of a sudden [...] RabbitMQ 
consumes all available CPU and memory", but in the report the memory 
usage is shown as 90MB, which isn't very high.

Are you sure that it is *rabbit* that is eating all the CPU & memory? 
Please check the CPU/memory usage of the beam.smp process and include 
that in your report next time the problem occurs.
