RabbitMQ 3.7.5

RabbitMQ 3.7.5 a maintenance release that primarily includes bug fixes.

Upgrades and Compatibility

This release includes one potential incompatibility with earlier 3.7.x releases. It will only affect applications that use a lot (at least hundreds) of channels per connection. Previous behavior can be restored via configuration.

See 3.7.0 release notes upgrade and compatibility notes if upgrading from an earlier release.

See the Upgrading guide for general documentation on upgrades.

See RabbitMQ change log for release notes of other releases.


Core Server

Bug Fixes


  • New ha-promote-on-failure queue mirroring setting to augment already existing ha-promote-on-shutdown.

    GitHub issue: rabbitmq-server#1578

  • queue.delete operations will now force delete queues that don't have a promotable

    GitHub issue: rabbitmq-server#1501

  • Lock contention in internal database is now much lower when a node with a lot of exclusive queues
    shuts down or is otherwise considered to be unavailable by peers. This means fewer CPU cycles
    spent cleaning up the exclusive queues.

    GitHub issue: rabbitmq-server#1570

  • Default max number of channels allowed on a connection (a.k.a. channel_max) has been lowered from 65535 to 2047.
    The new default is much safer and will reduce the effect application channel leaks have on node resource consumption. This is a potentially breaking change.

    Systems where a lot (at least hundreds) of channels per connection are used should explicitly override channel_max in the config file to a higher suitable value, e.g.:

    channel_max = 4000

    GitHub issue: rabbitmq-server#1593

  • Ranch dependency has been updated to 1.5.x which should prevent rare cases of mass termination of client connections.

CLI Tools

Bug Fixes

  • -t (--timeout) is now only displayed for commands that will actually use it.

    GitHub issue: rabbitmq-cli#236

Management Plugin

Bug Fixes

  • GET /api/overview could fail if SNI for management plugin listener was configured.

    GitHub issue: rabbitmq-management#567

  • rabbitmqadmin could run into an exception with certain formatting settings on Python 2.x.

    GitHub issue: rabbitmq-management#568

  • HTTP API stats documentation used incorrect field names.

    GitHub issue: rabbitmq-management#561

Bug Fixes


Federation Plugin

Bug Fixes

  • Federation upstream sets could run into a type error with exchange federation.

    GitHub issue: rabbitmq-federation#75

Bug Fixes

  • Shovel names are again included into (application-provided) connection names and can therefore
    be seen in the management UI.

    GitHub issue: rabbitmq-shovel#40

Peer Discovery AWS Plugin

Bug Fixes

Peer Discovery Kubernetes Plugin
