[rabbitmq-discuss] RabbitMQ stops responding for a few seconds, logs a "Context: shutdown_error", then resumes as if nothing happened

Hi Matt,

Usual request for any scrubbed log(s) you can provide please! :)

Also, if you could confirm that /api/queues every 5 seconds is the only non-amqp traffic the broker(s) will be subject to, that'd be quite useful to know as well.

(The time was the same on both brokers) Previous to this moment in time, all HTTP queries were successful, and after this moment in time, all queries were sucessful - As I said, just one blip on each broker.
