finally got around to reproducing the situation. After upgrading to
ubuntu 11.10 server and rabbitmq-2.7.1 the latter is using much less
memory (around 3GB). It also does not crash but stays up albeit in
a "wedged" state i.e. it would not accept any further messages.

I see this by calling "celeryctl inspect active" -- it just hangs as
opposed to printing the active celery jobs (and it collects the celery
data by sending/receiving messages).

Just before getting into the stuck state I ran "rabbitmqctl report"
(please see https://bugs.launchpad.net/openquake/+bug/894024/comments/6)
and the RAM usage command ypou kindly supplied (please see

I hope this helps.
