[rabbitmq-discuss] Counting messages dropped because of expired TTL

Hi there, 

We recently ran into a situation where we have more message than we can 
process, so I want to temporarily drop certain unimportant messages. This 
will be using a per-message TTL. I was wondering whether it was possible to 
see how many messages are actually dropped because their TTL has expired by 
the time they end up at the front of the queue. Is this information tracked 
and obtainable by Rabbit, or would I have to resort to a DLX-approach and 
process those dead messages manually?

Thanks in advance!
