[rabbitmq-discuss] Can RabbitMQ handle big messages?

Hi, Zabrane:  In theory the AMQP protocol IIRC allows crazy large message payloads (2^64 bytes I believe).  In practice though, that's madness since you end up with potential copying and buffering along the way that could make a broker very unhealthy.

For moving bulk binary data as in your app, you'd be wise to fragment at the producer and reassemble at the destination/consumer. Keeping your chunks in the 100KB range might be a decent place to start experimenting.
