I can get the number of consumers using rabbitmqctl as such:

# rabbitmqctl list_queues name consumers  | grep q-firewall-plugin
q-firewall-plugin   2

But when using the API url:


It responds with:

    "name":"q-firewall plugin",

There should be another field called consumers which gives you the count.

    "consumers": 0,
    "consumer_details": [],
    "name": "Liquid.RPC.Debug",
