Like I said earlier in this thread, such failures cannot be recovered by other RabbitMQ nodes (it is easy
to see with #2). It is not even clear how to recover (e.g. how do you free up disk space).

What you need is a tool such as Monit which monitors RabbitMQ nodes, available disk space, etc
and sends out notifications and (if possible) tries to recover the system.
