You can find out how much RAM a queue consumes with
"rabbitmqctl list_queues name memory".

You can get an idea of how many messages are on disk by calling
"rabbitmqctl list_queues name memory backing_queue_status"
and noting the "persistent_count" value. Bear in mind that this is not
part of the published interface, and it only provides a message count.
