Yes, look at <thing>.message_stats, where <thing> is exchange, channel, 
queue or overview. This will include (e.g.) 'publish_details' which will 
be derived from the absolute counter, and 'publish', which will be the 
absolute counter itself.

You should be aware that these stats are held in memory by the 
management DB, and so can reset if the DB fails over or is restarted. 
(And before 3.1 they were not monotonic at all.) The seq_id Jason 
mentioned is persistent, but less fine grained.

Cheers, Simon
