Ah, so it's the memory rather than the disk limit that has been exceeded.

Rabbit shouldn't be using anywhere near the 300M indicated above unless 
you have thousands of resources (exchanges, queues, bindings), thousands 
of connections, or millions of messages.

I suggest you inspect the state of your rabbit with the various 
"rabbitmqctl list_*" commands or using the management UI.

Also, what version of rabbit are you running? If it's not the latest 
(2.8.2) then please upgrade.
