Hi Michael Klishin, 

   We didn’t get any error/warning messages in that specified scenario.

But we are facing another problem like "some of the messages are disappeared from the queue even though they are not get consumed by the client", Where we are getting some exceptions in our consumer logs. Can you please find the attached mail.  Suggest me the suitable fix.

There have to be some error messages somewhere. One possible reason is that when a device goes idle for a long time, Android hibernates the app entirely and it does not send out heartbeats, so RabbitMQ considers the connection dead.

There should be warnings in RabbitMQ log about this.
