[rabbitmq-discuss] RabbitMQ monitoring app shows load balancer IP instead of client IP

The x-forwarded-for is a application level thing and it only applies to HTTP.. In the case if AMQP, I doubt Amazon's LB operates at application level and understands the protocol. Instead, the LB operates at TCP/IP level establishing new TCP connection to Rabbit from its own IP and forwarding data between incoming connection and that Rabbit connection without any understanding what that data is.
Which means it cannot add any information what wasn't there already.
