The management plugin will report on memory use, but not CPU use. I 
would always assume if you wanted to monitor CPU use on a Rabbit node 
you'd use an external tool like Nagios anyway.

I note that yourkit is actually a *profiler*. If you want to *profile* 
RabbitMQ then Erlang has some profiling capabilities (albeit not shiny 
polished GUIs). But is that what you want? I would view profiling 
RabbitMQ as more my problem than yours :-)
