[rabbitmq-discuss] Rabbit connections dying from protected enviornment

The F5 load balancers (LTMs) by default do a reset on time out at 300

If you look, the TCP and Fast L4 profiles both default idle timeout at 300
seconds.  The LTM is their "Local Traffic Manager" - I'm not actually sure
about their other products.  Their GTM's are just dns providers so nothing
there.  But I THINK their firewalls have some of the same timeouts.  Note
the "LTM"'s are pretty equivalent to HAProxy.  On crack.  The GTM's are
sorta like BIND - again on crack :)
