Closing orphaned RabbitMQ connections

I’ve been working with RabbitMQ a lot lately, and one problem I’ve run into is that occasionally during the course of development, something goes wrong and we leave a lot of connections open.  Enabling the heartbeat will take care of this for the most part, but if someone didn’t do that, you can end up with connections left open on the server.  Here is a quick shell script to close all the connections from a particular IP address:

for c in `rabbitmqctl list_connections peer_address pid | grep $peerToDisconnect`;
if [ $c != $peerToDisconnect ];
then rabbitmqctl close_connection $c "Orphaned - disconnecting";
