[rabbitmq-discuss] Stopping RabbitMQ on Ubuntu

I am new to RabbitMQ, and just installed a version on Ubuntu 10.04.

I was playing around with the command line tool `rabbitmqctl`, and found 
something strange.

When I issue: 'sudo -u root rabbitmqctl stop', all other RabbitMQ processes 
are shut down, except for one: /usr/lib/erlang/erts-5.7.4/bin/epmd -daemon, 
which is owned by user 'rabbitmq'.

What is this process? and does it mean that RabbitMQ is not completely shut 
down on my system? If that is the case, how should I stop RabbitMQ 
properly. Thanks!
