[rabbitmq-discuss] RabbitMQ Consumer stops responding after some time

The messages are not arriving at the queue though being sent by the
producer. That means, no messages no processing. I think it might be the
case of peer connection being closed. Is there any parameter or something
that sets the connection timeout? I am using rabbitmq version 3.0.3.

You can think of it as the producer consumer problem with each module
behaving both consumer as well as producer but queue for writing as well as
reading are different.

With respect to attached image, numbers are showing the message progress
flow and arrows are showing the queues with arrow pointed end showing the

PFA the implementation image.
