Rabbit is using 136MB of memory and failed to allocate an additional 
10MB. Are you running rabbit in a very memory constrained environment? 
What memory limit does rabbit report in its logs?

Rabbit should in fact run ok with little memory, but its ability to cope 
with high loads and spikes is severely compromised in such a setting and 
the default value of the memory threshold 
(http://www.rabbitmq.com/admin-guide.html#memsup-usage) might need lowering.
