We already had Hyperic HQ in place, and I find its tracking of broker stats
(dequeue count / minute, enqueue count / minute) invaluable.  I believe Fuse
Source includes an OEM'ed version of Hyperic as "Fuse HQ" so I imagine they
find it useful too.  :)   JConsole and the web console, at least, won't give
you a view of "throughput" (as far as I can tell), and certainly not the
nice historical charting HQ has.

The only downside is that while it auto-discovers queues, the UI has trouble
when you have more than a few hundred queues.  I think it has something to
do with trying to generate an aggregate status for the top level views.  I
just skip it and use the search to hit the broker statistics.  We use the
web console to look for top backed up queues as a result, though.  

Hope this helps.
