[rabbitmq-discuss] RabbitMQ broker crashing under heavy load with mirrored queues

Good evening.
We have  a cluster of two RabbitMQ nodes running 2.7.0 version using
mirrored queues.
There are 25 queues all using x-ha-policy = all.
There was a point where one queue had 5000 messages and the other
queue had about 600K messages. Message consumption was slow due to the
business logic using Cassandra was slowing down. At this point
executed rabbitmqctl report command one NodeA. It displayed that node
was down though the node was up. Executed the report command on NodeB,
after there was no response. After some time when executed rabbitmqctl
list_queues command on NodeA some of the queues were not listed. I
just wanted to find running report command when broker is under heavy
load can cause any problem.
