[rabbitmq-discuss] 3.1.1 High watermark permanent blocking

Presumably when the server is permanently blocked the memory use 
actually *is* over the high watermark, right? (Just wanted to check 
since I don't think you explicitly said that).

In that case, what does RabbitMQ say the memory is used by? Please see 
http://www.rabbitmq.com/memory-use.html for how to get it to tell you.

Cheers, Simon
