Disc space monitoring was added in 2.8.2. If the disc space falls below 
the monitored threshold then *the whole cluster* will stop accepting 
publishes until more space becomes available.

This doesn't completely stop you from running out of disc space, but it 
makes it very unlikely that RabbitMQ will take the last disc space on 
the machine.

Running out of disc space will cause RabbitMQ to crash.
