Subject [jira] [Commented] (AMQ-3469) Number of Pending Messages in Transactional Send to Composite Destination via Network of Brokers
Date Wed, 24 Aug 2011 13:59:30 GMT


Ozan Seymen commented on AMQ-3469:

...And zombie messages count seems to be the same as the output of cursorSize operation in
JMX (via JConsole). I'd appreciate _any_ feedback.

>                 URL:
>             Project: ActiveMQ
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Broker, JMX
>    Affects Versions: 5.5.0
>         Environment: Windows OS using NMS for C#
>            Reporter: Ozan Seymen
> Please see this arch diagram:
> There are two brokers: broker1 & broker2. Messages arriving at Q.Index.Transit.DC2
on broker1 is forwarded to broker2. Configuration files for both brokers are below.
> Scenario:
> 1. Start both brokers in separate consoles
> 2. Send 3000 messages in AcknowledgementMode.Transactional to broker1 (Q.Index.Replication).
> 3. While messages are flowing kill (shutdown console) broker2 and then broker1.
> 4. Start broker1 and then broker2.
> 5. Repeat 3&4 while messages are still flowing.
> 6. When all messages are published from producer to broker1, observe message counts in
broker1 Transit and broker2 Indexing queues. 
> You will see that both admin console and JConsole reporting more messages than there
actually are in Q.A.Indexing and Q.B.Indexing queues. 
> Take a look at this screenshot:
> All queues had 3003 messages (instead of 3000). When I consumed all messages in Q.A.Indexing
with my consumer, it successfully consumed 3000 messages (as expected) but admin console still
reports there are additional 3 messages pending in the queue. When I click on "Browse" to
inspect the messages in admin console it reports that there are no messages. When I restart
this broker, pending message count corrects itself and reports 0. 
> This is a problem for the monitoring and operations: There is no way of knowing whether
there are really 3 messages left and consumer is experiencing problems or consumer is alive
but there are no messages to consume.
> Here are the configuration files for both brokers:
> Broker1 configuration:
> Broker2 configuration:
