Thanks for explaining the unusual way you're starting RabbitMQ. That is 
likely to be the problem.

The management plugin uses a feature (fine grained statistics) that it 
needs to turn on in the main rabbit application. It sounds like this is 
not happening. This is controlled via a couple of application 
configuration parameters. Normally they default to turning this on, and 
the management plugin should detect if that's switched off and adjust 
the interface (and display warnings) accordingly, but that might not be 
happening for you.

What does your config file look like?

Also, why have you done this? What problem is it solving?

Cheers, Simon
