Subject [jira] Commented: (AMQ-1786) Journal files don't get cleaned up
Date Wed, 17 Jun 2009 16:46:35 GMT

Gary Tully commented on AMQ-1786:
---------------------------------

Sudip,
this is part of the contract when you make delivery persistent. The store cannot discard the
message. Expiry with a consumer is your only option till an expiry processor can be added
to activemq. see: https://issues.apache.org/activemq/browse/AMQ-1112

> I'm running ActiveMQ 5.1.0 with the AMQ persistence adapter, and it appears that not
all of the journal files get cleaned up.  My setup is a little abnormal, as I'm trying to
test out ActiveMQ's ability to handle queue messaging with consumers that may become inactive
for periods of time.
>  
> So for this test, I have a single publisher pushing messages out to 21 queues.  These
are persistent messages with an expiration time.  I have a message listener reading from all
queues (reading from '>').  So, as soon as the message is sent to the queues, it's read
by the message listener, taking it off the queue.  So far, so good.
>  
> I have a 2 MB max file length set on the AMQ persistence adapter.  So, I would expect
to see for the journal, 2 MB files that get cleaned up after the file rolls over.  However,
the journal files don't always get cleaned up, as shown in the file listing below.  Out of
181 rollovers, 30 of the files did not get cleaned up.  The message listener showed no errors,
and as far as I can tell, it didn't drop any messages.

> I've also tried taking out the wildcard '>' on a single consumer, and instead used
separate consumers for each queue, and I get the same result.
> I haven't even gotten to the test yet where the listener is not running.  So, in this
"normal" operation, all messages are consumed.  Yet, not all journal files get cleaned up.
 These left-over files don't ever get cleaned up.  They will eventually start filling the
hard drive.  I can understand files being left behind when there's no consumer, but there
is a consumer the whole time.
>  
> What I'm basically looking for is a persistence layer for messaging to multiple clients,
so that consumers can get messages retroactively when they start up.  I could try to use topics
with durable clients, but I thought the queues would be easier to setup, as messages in queues
are persisted by default.  However, I don't want the consumer to process "stale" messages,
which is why I set an expiration time.  So, I would think that, with a constant rate of messages,
the persistent disk store utilization would eventually level out as the messages started to
expire.  I realize that if there's no consumer for a queue, expired messages won't get cleaned
up (am currently trying to figure out a work-around for that - periodically checking the queues
with a QueueBrowser seems to trigger the removal of expired messages).  However, even when
all consumers are active, the journal keeps growing, as it's not always cleaning up it's files!
> I've attached my configuration to this ticket.
