If by an "RPC call" you mean a simple request-reply then 35/s is indeed terribly low,
even with persistent messages you should be able to do a few thousands a sec (depending
on hardware).  With non-persistent messages and using kombu+librabbitmq as the underlying transport
I'm able to do 20,000 messages/s on my laptop...
