php-amqp is a wrapper around the rabbitmq-c library, and thus not really a
good comparison. You should try it with the Java or .NET clients.

Enable heartbeats on the client. You can do this by passing a value greater
than 0 to amqp_login(). A default used by the Java client is 600 second, or
10 minutes. It can be set lower than this if necessary. Note that
rabbitmq-c only has partial support for heartbeats: it has nothing in the
background servicing heartbeat events, so it is necessary to have your code
call into the library (or be blocked on a call into the library) more
frequently than the heartbeat interval specified.

More information about heartbeats can be found:
