We have only tried this once. We plan to try it again early next week.

There are many errors like this before the crash:
=ERROR REPORT==== 21-Oct-2013::20:01:09 ===
webmachine error: path="/api/connections"

Error message says "Generic server <0.764.0> terminating". Does this not
indicate that node crashed?

This is good news. But, our product is already shipped with RabbitMQ 3.1.5
and upgrade won't be easy. Nonetheless, is this totally a server issue,
being hit because of high load, or can we do anything at the client end to

I don't think it took down the entire node, I expect the queue crashed.
Still unacceptable though.
We should never make use of gen_server:call/2 (which defaults to a 5
second timeout), always gen_server:call/3 with 'infinity' as the timeout.
Kapil, this will be fixed in the next release.
