[rabbitmq-discuss] rabbitmq-c: how to detect broker failure

Thank you, Alan.
Yes, I mean "broker failure" in the same sense as you have explained. I am using AMQP_RESPONSE_LIBRARY_EXCEPTION as an indication of broker failure. What does "library_error = 0" signify with that exception?

It depends on what you mean by "broker failure".

If you mean the broker hardware dies, the broker crashes, or (more likely) something interrupts the network: you'll get an network error on the client side.  In rabbitmq-c this manifests itself in different ways depending on the function being called: for functions returning an int, a non-zero value is returned, for functions returning an amqp_rpc_reply_t, type will be set to AMQP_RESPONSE_LIBRARY_EXCEPTION and library_error will be set to something non-zero, and for things returning a amqp_*_t object if a NULL value is returned, calling amqp_get_last_rpc_reply() will get an amqp_rpc_reply_t which the above rule should be followed.

I am using rabbitmq-c amqp client (0.2.0) to publish messages to RabbitMQ broker. I want to be notified in case of broker failure. Is there a way to detect this?
Any method or exception, which may notify us about this error while establishing a connection or publishing message?
