Gets attributes for the specified queue.

To determine whether a queue is FIFO, you can check whether QueueName ends with the .fifo suffix.

Some actions take lists of parameters. These lists are specified using the param.n notation. Values of n are integers starting from 1. For example, a parameter list with two elements looks like this:

&Attribute.1=this

&Attribute.2=that

For PCL and Unity this operation is only available in asynchronous form. Please refer to GetQueueAttributesAsync.
