[rabbitmq-discuss] "How do I...?"

I think a nice How Do I? would be a "my-rabbit-is-broken-what-am-i-going-to-do report how to".

Maybe that exists somewhere already… anyway…

Usually someone's rabbit starts behaving in unexpected ways and the person brings a report to this list… then Matthias or any of the rabbit guys goes like:

- Can you send in the logs?
- User sends logs… comments he has a Erlang crash dump… "should I send it also?"
- Yes… please attach that as well.
.... some emails in between ....
- Can you please also send the rabbit status…, and run this and that Erlang Command…
- And so on…

So perhaps a TODO list with:

- Architecture description (Which kind of machine… amount of ram… Erlang Version, OS installed, etc, etc,)
- In/egress 
- Message topology… n of queues, n of exchanges, durability, etc etc. (Somethings might be relevant at first… some others only after the diagnose process has begun).
- Result of erlang/rabbitmqctl commands that could bring interesting information for the diagnosis (I've seen a couple posted to this list).
- Logs and files to attach/upload if possible: rabbit logs, erlang crash dump, etc etc.

Of course this doesn't has to be a bureaucratic thing that if someones doesn't follow then he doesn't have a proper error report, but it has to be an easy to find guide on how to gather information in order to diagnose a misbehaving rabbit.
