We are actually using amqp_basic_consume(  ).
I see the difference between them:

Thus, to check indeed there are any messages in the queue, i will have to
keep on calling basic.get in a loop, that's as good as a blocking call like,

[Regarding your earlier reply about select( ), the file descriptor becomes
readable when, if there are any messages in the queue, right?]

The best is:
Do we have any API which can just check how many (or if there is any)
message in the queue?
