Subject [jira] Commented: (AMQ-1490) Deadlocks (with JUnit tests)

Rainer Klute commented on AMQ-1490:
-----------------------------------

I did some further investigation and changed by JUnit test to use a configurable number of
producers and consumers. The good news is that it demonstrates a bug with a very small amount
of messages already. I one of the test scenarios I have 2 producers. Each one sends 2 messages
to a topic. The single consumer should receive 4 messages. However, this fails depending on
the combination of whether the producers or the consumers or both operate transacted or not.
Increase the number of messages and other combinations fail. (I'll check in the JUnit test
soon.)

> For some time now there have been various bug reports about ActiveMQ "blocking", "not
receiving messages", "running into a deadlock" etc. Since I encoutered such deadlocks now
and then, too, I eventually wrote up a JUnit testing scenario for this stuff. I found out
that deadlocks can be quite easily reproduced. The symptoms are that the producer thread is
sending or committing while the consumer thread is receiving or committing - and none of them
can advance. One of the threads is always stuck in a blocking queue.

> The following factors seem to increase the probability of a deadlock:
> * small values for memoryUsage
> * working transacted in the consumer (not always necessary but "helps")
> * many messages in the persistence store (to be achieved via a long delay before the
consumer starts to read messages)
