If you use SSL, use long-lived connections.

Using SSL in your Bigwig add-on

Bigwig advertises your AMQPS URLs in the RABBITMQ_BIGWIG_SSL_TX_URL and RABBITMQ_BIGWIG_SSL_RX_URL variables.

Be aware that using SSL carries a significant cost on connection establishment. You can reduce this impact by using long-lived connections or SSL session caching.
