After running a java client for a while (15-20 minutes), it runs out
of memory with OutOfMemoryError.
I probably can postpone the problem by giving high values for -Xmx.

Doing jmap and jhat gave following info.

173233 instances of class com.rabbitmq.client.impl.AMQCommand
173233 instances of class com.rabbitmq.client.impl.CommandAssembler
173132 instances of class com.rabbitmq.client.impl.ChannelN
173132 instances of class com.rabbitmq.client.impl.ConsumerDispatcher
173096 instances of class com.rabbitmq.client.ShutdownSignalException
173096 instances of class com.rabbitmq.client.impl.AMQImpl$Channel

I create a channel at the beginning of run() method of the thread and
close() it in the finally block.
But seems like all see all the instances of

any idea, what can be going wrong?
