What's the hg revision id?

And what O/S and version of Erlang are you running this on?

Can you post the code for this test?

Does that mean you have 1000+ connections?

What is the file descriptor limit for the user account running the 
rabbit server?

Are there any interesting messages in the rabbit@<node>.log or 
rabbit@<node>-sasl.log? Can you post the contents of these log files? 
(If they are large, please upload them somewhere we can see them.)

Also, please post the output of
   rabbitmqctl list_connections
   rabbitmqctl list_channels
   rabbitmqctl list_exchanges
   rabbitmqctl list_bindings
   rabbitmqctl list_queues

(again, if the output is large please upload it somewhere).
