That can work, but it is also possible to obtain the queue length using
AMQP, which is probably more convenient for your publishers. Declare the
queue passively and extract the message-count field:


There are other ways of determining the queue length (e.g. using methods
bearing a message-count parameter), but they disturb the queue contents.
