Recovering from a non-polite shutdown of RabbitMQ can take a long time.
We've recently fixed improved this which should make a bit of a
difference in the next release but there's still more work that could be
done in this regard. In short, if you have thousands of queues, or if
you have millions of messages on disk, then recovery from a kill of
Rabbit can take many minutes.
