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


       /etc/rabbitmq/rabbitmq.conf 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/rabbitmq/rabbitmq.conf and finally from the
       built-in default values. For example, for the RABBITMQ_NODENAME

           from the environment is checked first. If it is absent or equal to
           the empty string, then

           from /etc/rabbitmq/rabbitmq.conf is checked. 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/rabbitmq/rabbitmq.conf 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/rabbitmq/rabbitmq.conf file, etc.


       The following is an example of a complete /etc/rabbitmq/rabbitmq.conf
       file that overrides the default Erlang node name from "rabbit" to

           # I am a complete /etc/rabbitmq/rabbitmq.conf file.
           # Comment lines start with a hash character.
           # This is a /bin/sh script file - use ordinary envt var syntax
