No, it does not. The ideas is to let consumers catch up and (hopefully) make alarms
clear by e.g. freeing RAM.

Are you sure your Rabbit is not running out of file descriptors? That's one reason

Please check max file descriptors available with ulimit -n (you need to use the same
user rabbitmq runs under).
