Some possible things that could make the results lower than you would
expect are:
1) All machines are virtual machines, including the RabbitMQ servers.
Virtualization typically costs around 40%.
2) All VMs were only assigned 2 CPUs.  The CPUs are Intel Xeon E5620 @ 2.4 GHz.

OpenStack uses the kombu.  Unless there is a client with a compatible
API, I don't think it would be easy to change.
