Subject [jira] [Commented] (AMQ-4052) When consumers was killed and restarted frequently, some messages could not be consumed by consumer but they were still in pending messages.
Date Fri, 21 Sep 2012 07:13:09 GMT


Wei Wei commented on AMQ-4052:

If the consumer was killed, the broker will rollback the transaction. In rollback method,
broker will set the acked status to false of the message of which the broker had received
the ack command but hadn't received the commit command from consumer. But before the rollback
method was called, the dispatch thread was still running, if there is new consumers, the message
whose acked status is true will still be dispatched.

At first, I thought the bug still exists in version5.7,  because I only noticed the change:
if (!node.isDropped() && !((QueueMessageReference) node).isAcked() && (!node.isDropped()
|| s.getConsumerInfo().isBrowser()))
if (!node.isDropped()),

but didn't notice the change:
if (dispatchSelector.canSelect(s, node) && assignMessageGroup(s, (QueueMessageReference)node))
if (dispatchSelector.canSelect(s, node) && assignMessageGroup(s, (QueueMessageReference)node)
&& !((QueueMessageReference) node).isAcked() ).

The appended condition "!((QueueMessageReference) node).isAcked()" will prevent the message
whose acked status is true from being dispatched. So the bug was fixed in version 5.7.

>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Broker
>    Affects Versions: 5.6.0
>         Environment: CentOS release 5.6 (Final) java version "1.6.0_30"
>            Reporter: Wei Wei
> The phenomenon of the bug:
> When consumers was killed and restarted frequently, some messages could not be consumed
by consumer but they were still in pending messages.
> Reason:
> When consumer consumes messages in transaction, it sends ack command and transaction
commit command separately, if the consumer was killed between ack command and transaction
commit command, in other words the Broker only received the ack command but did not receive
the transaction commit command, this lead to the message in PrefetchSubscription’s dispatched
list was set ack true, but was not removed from dispatched list. When the consumer was killed,
Queue#removeSubscription() was called, in this method, PrefetchSubscription#remove() was called
to put PrefetchSubscription’s pending list and dispatched list to Queue’s redeliveredWaitingDispatch
list. After that, when Queue#doDispatch() was called, the redeliveredWaitingDispatch list
was transferred to Queue#doActualDispatch () method to dispatch the messages to consumer again.
In Queue#doActualDispatch () method, if all consumers isFull() method returns true, the target
is null and the expression “interestCount > 0” become the only condition to judge if
the message should be put back to the  redeliveredWaitingDispatch, but now the message’s
isAcked() method returns true, this lead to interestCount is 0, and then the message was not
put back to redeliveredWaitingDispatch, but it was not consumed and was still in pagedInMessages.

> Solution:
> In PrefetchSubscription#remove() method, set ack status to false for all messages in
dispatched list. The code as follows:
> {code}
>     public List<MessageReference> remove(ConnectionContext context, Destination
destination) throws Exception {
>         List<MessageReference> resultList = new ArrayList<MessageReference>();
>         synchronized(pendingLock) {
>             super.remove(context, destination);
>             // Here is a potential problem concerning Inflight stat:
>             // Messages not already committed or rolled back may not be removed from
dispatched list at the moment
>             // Except if each commit or rollback callback action comes before remove
of subscriber.
>             resultList.addAll(pending.remove(context, destination));
>             // Synchronized to DispatchLock
>             synchronized(dispatchLock) {
>                 ArrayList<MessageReference> references = new ArrayList<MessageReference>();
>                 for (MessageReference msgRef : dispatched) {
>                     if( msgRef.getRegionDestination() == destination) {
>                         references.add(msgRef);
>                         if (msgRef instanceof QueueMessageReference) {
>                         	QueueMessageReference ref = (QueueMessageReference) msgRef;
>                         	ref.setAcked(false);
>                         }
>                     }
>                 }
>                 resultList.addAll(references);
>                 destination.getDestinationStatistics().getDispatched().subtract(references.size());
>                 destination.getDestinationStatistics().getInflight().subtract(references.size());
>                 dispatched.removeAll(references);
>             }
>         }
>         return resultList;
