What happens when you run the above test with both nodes on the same 

Also, you really shouldn't need 20 producers/consumers to saturate a 
broker, unless the machine has >20 cores. So I'd be interested to hear 
what the smallest producer/consumer count is at which you see a 
significant performance difference between the single node and dual node 

Finally, it would be helpful if you ran your tests using RabbitMQ's 
standard performance testing tool, PerfTest - 
http://www.rabbitmq.com/java-tools.html#perftest. In order to replicate 
the above scenario you'd run 20 PerfTest instances with options
   -u q<n> -x 0 -a
and 20 instances with
   -u q<n> -y 0
with n in 1..20.
