RabbitMQ does not currently provide any means to browse the messages
within a queue.  The only way you can get at the messages is through the
normal AMQP methods that consume the messages (basic.consume and
basic.get).  But these are not simple read-only operations of the type
you might want for monitoring of the messages within a queue.
