Thanks for the pointer.

The monitoring information being mostly present, the main questions are:

Would it be possible to get an absolute counter rather than a rate and
let the monitoring application (Nagios, Graphite...) decide on how
frequently to probe the broker?

Would it be possible to get the number of received/sent messages by the
broker without enabling fine grain statistics that, according to the
doc, have a significant performance impact? After all, total numbers per
broker are not really fine grain ;-)
