What matters a lot more is how many messages there are in the queues during peaks
and their sizes.

I just created 30,000 empty queues on a 64 bit machine and see Erlang VM consuming
589 MB of RAM on peak (slightly lower after some time).

The most technical answer I can think of is: benchmark on your own OS/architecture/hardware/workload.
