RabbitMQ RDQ files filling up storage on server


Do you know why the RabbitMQ service is creating all these files "*.rdq", close to 2000 files updated today, totaling up to 50GB

C:\Program Files\Coveo Enterprise Search 7\Third-Party\RabbitMQ for Coveo\db\rabbit@SNF-SC-STG-CA-mnesia\msgstorepersistent

Any way to avoid this?

The files on the file system are RabbitMQ messages waiting in the queues to be consumed. It's probably because you have Sitecore instances pushing messages to the RabbitMQ queues but you don't have any consumers listening on those queues to consume the messages…

In your other question today, you mentioned you changed the service logon account of the RabbitMQ service and restarted the service. This has closed the connections between CES and RabbitMQ. You need to reconnect the CES sources to the RabbitMQ queues. Disable and enable the live monitoring on your CES sources to reconnect them to the queues.

Thanks - Where do I go to enable live monitoring?

A little search for "live monitoring" on would have guided you to the documentation:
