Not at the moment. The broker may decide to send messages to disk when
even a small fraction of memory is used.

There is no configuration that prevents messages from being saved to
disk. You may be able to achieve this by providing your own queue
implementation or by configuring the broker to persist messages on a RAM

Can you provide the motivation behind your question? What should happen
when the broker runs out of memory?
