Subject [jira] [Commented] (AMQ-4022) SEND directly after SUBSCRIBE causes bad state -> no DISCONNECT receipt
Date Tue, 11 Sep 2012 08:43:07 GMT


Timothy Bish commented on AMQ-4022:

Have you tried using the 5.6.0 release of ActiveMQ or a 5.7 SNAPSHOT?  There were a lot of
fixes and improvements in the STOMP transport between 5.5.1 and 5.6

> A message is lost, the connection ends up in a strange state, and then when the client
sends DISCONNECT it gets no receipt.

> Steps to reproduce:
> 1) Using STOMP
> 2) Send a SUBSCRIBE message with destination=/topic/foo, without asking for a receipt.
No other options sent in message.
> 3) Send a message to /topic/foo, without asking for a receipt.
> 4) Wait 10ms for message
> 5) Go right ahead and send DISCONNECT message, asking for a receipt.
> 5.1) About 20% of the time, no DISCONNECT receipt is received, however long the client
waits. This seems to coincide with the case when the message doesn't arrive in #4.
> 5.2) It does look like ActiveMQ gets the DISCONNECT message tho since it unsubscribes
the client from /topic/foo at that timestamp.
> The DISCONNECT receipt getting lost is clearly a bug. Waiting for the receipt is important
since I've seen cases where the client isn't unregistered properly in ActiveMQ if the client
just sends DISCONNECT and then closes the socket.

> It's a naive minimal patch to make it wait for a receipt for the DISCONNECT message.
It will actually just wait for any frame to arrive and won't check what it is, but it's enough
for this test.
> Run a few times. A non-buggy run completes almost immediately. A buggy run
hangs the script during disconnect.
> Workaround
> ---
> -When sending the SUBSCRIBE with receipt requested, and waiting for the receipt before
sending the SEND, I was unable to reproduce the issue, even after running the script 100000
> No, it turns out that the workaround suggested above does not completely eliminate the
problem. It probably just introduces a large enough delay to almost always avoid the race
condition. After 30000 additional test runs with the script the error occured again.
