[rabbitmq-discuss] RabbitMQ - can we make use policies as load balancing in cluster?

Hi Team,

I have one more question on clustering from RabbitMQ HA documentation
understanding.  As per the docs, with clustering we can only achieve
high-availability i.e, fail-over(where all the queues are mirrored across
the nodes) not exactly load balancing right?

Where load balancing is, when one of the node in cluster achieved peak
level where that node cannot handle further queues. In this case newly
generated queues has to go to other node in the cluster right? But, I
couldn't find this kind of behavior in the document. Can't we achieve these
kind of behaviors with RabbitMQ clustering?

Thanks in advance.
