Sorry, why do you expect basic.cancel to close connections? It cancels
consumers (terminates subscriptions, if you will) and does not affect
connections in any way.

HTTP API was created for the cases like yours. rabbitmqctl can work just as well
but I find parsing standard output to be a more fragile solution than parsing a JSON response.

By the way, RabbitMQ mailing list has a new home:
