I am doing some testing with RabbitMQ and Stomp.
I am using stomp-benchmark to run the scenario attached to this email.

It is producing small messages at highest rate possible on a topic on a
RabbitMQ server, the topic does not have any consumer attached.
I can be run with such a command:
sbt run --host host --login guest --passcode guest --port 61613
 --scenario-file custom.xml /tmp/rabbitmq_topic

I am running rabbitmq-server on a 16GB memory machine and 8GB swap with
watermark level of 0.5 (7.8GB watermark)
Memory level output from the web interface reach values > 20GB.
Why does the memory goes up if there are no consumers attached to the topic?
Messages are supposed to be discarded straight away.
