Hi all,

We have a large amount of incoming data (400mb/sec) all of which is
small, mostly 20 bytes, occasionally 200 bytes.

Is the AMQP header going to hurt us by being a major percentage of
what we send, if we send each bit of data in it's own message?  If so,
is there an easy way to batch messages, thereby getting the amount of
data / message something that makes the header less of a factor?

We are looking into rabbitmq-shovel.  Although this looks very nice
for round rabbiting, I have yet to determine if this plugin will batch
the data for us.
