We can see that the 'thot.processor' queue has 863 messages ready, and 
one consumer, on channel <rabbit at ns353204.3.1624.0>. That channel is 
associated with connection <rabbit at ns353204.3.1621.0>. That connection 
has a 'send_pend' count of 8432.

This indicates that the client is not reading from the rabbit connection 
socket. So this is either a problem with the client library or with the 
app. I am not much of a python hacker and am not familiar with 
stormed-amqp, but I suggest the next step is to figure out what the 
consumer process is doing when its stuck, i.e. somehow get a stack trace 
from it.
