I'd also recommend looking at the Aliveness test.  See the management API
for details:

This is a very simple check that can be done from the load balancer
typically to see not only if the host is up, but also in a state that can
publish & consume messages.  You can also have the load balancer do a port
check on 5672 (by default port can be changed) but you will get lots of
errors in your rabbit log files about this.
