emfile errors are often an indication that rabbit has run out of file 
descriptors, the most likely cause of which is too many concurrent AMQP 

I suggest you run 'rabbitmqctl list_connections' repeatedly to see 
whether there is any growth in the connection count. Tools like 
'netstat' and 'lsof' can help too to figure out where the file 
descriptors are going.

If a high connection count is expected in your application, you may have 
to raise the OS-imposed fd limits.
