You can select client or server acknowledgements with synchronous mode
using the no-ack field of the basic.ack method:
Some clients call this field "auto-ack".

Whether messages are retrieved synchronously and whether queues are
mirrored are orthogonal so you can use these together in any

You should decide whether to mirror queues based on the same
considerations you would normally apply. Eg, are there sufficient
resources to support mirroring and what is the impact of a node crashing?
