Can you explain this a bit more clearly please. Clients publish to exchanges, not queues. Unroutable messages are dropped on the floor, unless confirms are in use. So what exactly are you trying to do here?

If you need timely detection of connectivity problems, enabling heartbeats is the way to go, but it's not clear whether or not that's the issue you're asking about. If you just want to know about unroutable messages then producer confirms are the recommended approach.
