I regularly process 2000 messages per second from durable queues with persistent messages, with a prefetch-count of 2000. My messages are 1500 to 2000 bytes each. The RabbitMQ server and the consumer are both in the same data center. My consumer is writing the messages to disk, in a flat-file.

There must be something in the Java code which causes the slowdown. Can you post your setup and processing loop?
