        /etc/default/rabbitmq - default settings for RabbitMQ AMQP server


        /etc/default/rabbitmq contains variable settings that override the
        defaults built in to the RabbitMQ startup scripts.
        The file is interpreted by the system shell, and so should consist of a
        sequence of shell environment variable definitions. Normal shell syntax
        is permitted (since the file is sourced using the shell "."  operator),
        including line comments starting with "#".
        In order of preference, the startup scripts get their values from the
        environment, from /etc/default/rabbitmq, and finally from the built-in
        default values. For example, for the RABBITMQ_NODENAME setting,
            from the environment is checked first. If it is absent or equal
            to the empty string, then
            from /etc/default/rabbitmq is checked next. If it is also absent
            or set equal to the empty string, then the default value from the
            startup script is used.
        The variable names in /etc/default/rabbitmq are always equal to the
        environment variable names, with the RABBITMQ_ prefix removed:
        RABBITMQ_NODE_PORT from the environment becomes NODE_PORT in the
        /etc/default/rabbitmq file, etc.


        The following is an example of a complete /etc/default/rabbitmq file
        that overrides the default Erlang node name from "rabbit" to "hare":
            # I am a complete /etc/default/rabbitmq file.
            # Comment lines start with a hash character.
            # This is a /bin/sh script file - use ordinary envt var syntax
