There are two different issues here.

The problem here is that the disk space monitor can't parse the output 
of "/bin/df -kP /var/lib/rabbitmq/mnesia/". What does that command 
produce on your machine? What OS are you running?

This is more serious - the "Cannot rename disk_log file" is causing real 
problems. Could something be deleting or moving files in 
/var/lib/rabbitmq/? Or changign their permissions?
