Unfortunately they don't contain enough information (apart from to 
confirm that all the memory is being used by queues).

Please can you send us the result of:

rabbitmqctl eval 
'lists:sublist(lists:reverse(lists:sort([{process_info(Pid,memory), Pid, 
sys:get_status(Pid,infinity)} || Pid <- [element(7, Q) || Q <- 
rabbit_amqqueue:list()]])), 10).'

BUT BEWARE: This command will use several times more memory than the 
queues are themselves using - it sounds like you are able to replicate 
this state quite easily so please run this command when memory use is 
still comparatively low (but growing).

Thanks, Simon
