Subject [jira] [Created] (AMQ-4068) Job Scheduler Store Growth is Unrestricted
Date Thu, 20 Sep 2012 13:21:07 GMT
David Valeri created AMQ-4068:

             Summary: Job Scheduler Store Growth is Unrestricted
                 Key: AMQ-4068
             Project: ActiveMQ
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Broker
    Affects Versions: 5.6.0
            Reporter: David Valeri

When using scheduled delivery, it is possible to grow the job scheduler store indefinitely.
 As no quota can be set on the size of this store, a malfunctioning, malicious, or prodigious
producer can easily consume all available storage with scheduled messages without any alerts
being raised by the broker.  If the operators do not have disk space monitoring in place outside
of the broker, the broker can become innoperable without warning.

Provide a mechanism to set a usage quota for the job scheduler store.  The mechanism should
conform to the current resource quota model provided by SystemUsage as well as provide monitoring
through JMX.

I have attached a basic patch to add management, enforcement, and configurability to the size
of the job scheduler data store.  Any guidance on things I missed or did not account for would
be greatly appreciated.

While testing the size reporting in JMX, I noticed that the he Kaha persistence adapter seems
to calculate its size differently than the job scheduler store.  It appears that the job scheduler
store is reporting the size of the data files and index while the Kaha persistence adapter
is only reporting the size of the data files.  What is the reason for this difference?  I
noticed the difference because the broker was reporting a 33% usage of the job scheduler store
(100MB limit) immediately on a clean broker startup.
