No idea why that would happen. Could be a quirk of the stats reporting 
since evidently you are receiving more acks than messages, which cannot 
possibly be true for anything other than brief periods.

As high as possible, though I doubt anything much higher than 100 will 
be beneficial in your case.

The downsides of high prefetch counts are:

- increase in client buffering requirements

- work load imbalance at consumers when work loads are non-uniform

- increased cost at broker when consumer connections are interrupted
