How is your consumer "reading data"? Using basic.consume or basic.get? 
The latter obviously won't show up as a queue consumer as it's a one-off 
request/response operation.

Also, consumers to which no messages can be sent at present because they 
are blocked (e.g. the client is using basic.qos prefetch and the 
prefetch count has been reached), are excluded.
