My colleague suggests that heartbeats are not disabled by default in 2.3.x releases.
Some firewalls and router products close TCP connections without any activity on them in,
say, 5-15 minutes.

Consider upgrading to at least 2.8 (it won’t require upgrading RabbitMQ in lockstep)
and enabling heartbeats [1].
