What does 'stops responding' actually mean? Does the consumer cease processing messages (when there are still un-acked messages in the queue(s) it is consuming from) or is the problem something else.

Just because the server still sees a connection, doesn't mean that the physical network link remains - operating systems can take 'quite some time' to notice unresponsive peers. Also, I didn't realise that the amqp-c client had support for heartbeats? Perhaps the maintainer can clear that up though, as it's quite possible it does but I've simply forgotten.

We'll do our best to help. If you could clarify what specific (and unexpected) behaviour your seeing in the consumer, then we'll take it from there.
