[rabbitmq-discuss] WCF bindings connection drop outs

Thanks for the quick reply Emile!

I will enable heartbeats and let you know how that goes early next

Not sure I get your response regarding durable queues? Only the
service queues are durable. The client queues are not, and it is the
client queues that are hanging about on the broker when a client's WCF
channel resets. In a normal scenario, once I close the client channel,
the client queues on the broker are deleted. However in the above
scenario, the connection has gone down and there seems to be no way
for the client to notify the broker that this is the case, and thus
the queues will just hang about?

We have made the service queues only durable to minimise disruption
when WCF services are brought down (for releases mainly). This also
has the benefit of allowing the queue to be named which we can monitor
clearly through the admin plugin (without these named queues, it would
be annoying to constantly work out which randomly generated queue name
corresponds to which service).
