This is the per-connection flow control kicking in. This is designed to
rate limit publishers which are publishing faster than messages can be
queued, since otherwise these messages end up ballooning memory use
waiting to get into queues, which rarely ends well.
Note that when flow control happens the affected connections cannot send
data to RabbitMQ. This includes message acks, so it's a good idea to use
different connections for publishing and consuming. Could this explain
why you say all your consumers stop working?
But note that the screen capture you sent shows messages being consumed.
