Hi Jim. Two possibilities spring to mind:

1) Is the management agent running on all nodes in the cluster? If it's 
not installed on any node, any activity on that node will not be counted.

2) Is that queue consumed from by clients that open and close very short 
lived channels? There's a longstanding bug / lacking feature in mgmt 
that short-lived channels do not contribute to statistics.
