Rabbit tries to operate inside a defined fraction of available RAM, 
which can be set in the rabbitmq.config (NB: .config, not .conf; also, 
as of release 2.4.0 the rabbitmq.conf file has been renamed to 
rabbitmq-env.conf, to avoid confusion with the rabbitmq.config file).

See http://www.rabbitmq.com/extensions.html#memsup for details.

Note that the fraction is not a hard bound - it is quite normal for 
rabbit to exceed that threshold temporarily by 100% (and more in some 
extreme cases).

There is no way to configure a hard and/or absolute limit.
