     RABBITMQ_MNESIA_BASE
             Defaults to /var/lib/rabbitmq/mnesia.  Node data directory will
             be located (or created) in this directory.  To learn more, see

             By default RabbitMQ will bind to all IPv6 and IPv4 interfaces

             face or address family.  To learn more, see the RabbitMQ
