Subject [jira] [Commented] (AMQ-3697) Messages not delivered to connecter consumer
Date Mon, 06 Feb 2012 15:35:59 GMT


William commented on AMQ-3697:

I am able to reproduce the problem. The scenario is the following.

Send a lot of messages, let's say hundreds very quickly on one topic with one consumer. Messages
are consumed and suddently (I think when the send rate is too high)  messages stopped to be
consume. I run the debugger and I can see that when the prefetch size is higher than the dispatched
count the topic is condiered as full and messages are not dispatched to the consumer.

The situation can only get back to normal when the consumer is restarted because the counters

So Here are my questions : 

* What does dispatchCount, dequeueCount, etc mean ? 
* Do I have to adjust message acknowledgement and prefetch size ?
* Does the fact that dequeue count never increase means that the consumers are blocked ?

>          Components: Broker
>    Affects Versions: 5.5.1
>         Environment: SunOS 5.10 Generic_142909-17 sun4v sparc SUNW,T5140

> I am using ActiveMQ 5.5.1 and sometimes messages are not dispatched to connected consumers.

> A single broker is used. No transaction and no persistence is used for message delivery.
Message consumers are spring template made for topic consuption. Optimize acknowledge is enabled
and acknowledgment is auto.
> By Looking at JMX Topic MBean I can see that messages are received but not dispatched
(and of course non depueued). I noticed that disptatched count was 100 more than dequeue count.
> From JMX : 
> * Received count : 4502
> * Dispatched count : 3756
> * Dequeued count : 3656
> If a start a new consumer on the same topic, the messages are only dispatched to the
new consumer while the older one is still seen as connected (consumer count on the mbean is
2). Once the problem appear the only solution is to restart the consumer or the activemq instance.
> It seems that even if the consumer is seen as connected, messages as not dispatched for
an unknow reason. 
> Which logs can I enable in order to diagnose the problem (on activemq side and/or consumer
side) ? I have already made a thread dump, not thread are blocke
