rabbitmqctl  list_queues messages messages_ready messages_unacknowledged

That will give you an idea of what's going on in your queues.  Be wary of things piling up unacknowledged.  That could mean you have clients that aren't auto-acking and aren't explicitly acking either, which will cause the broker to hang on to those messages because responsibility for them hasn't been taken by the client.

Best regards,
