Subject [jira] [Created] (AMQ-4119) Add memory usage *count* to destination MBean for better detection of memory leaks

Stirling Chow created AMQ-4119:

             Summary: Add memory usage *count* to destination MBean for better detection of
memory leaks
                 Key: AMQ-4119
             Project: ActiveMQ
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: JMX
    Affects Versions: 5.7.0
            Reporter: Stirling Chow

We've been doing a lot of tuning of memory usage limits and exploring the behaviour of producer
flow control when these limits are reached.  In so doing, we've wanted to validate that memory
usage counts are not leaking (e.g., as a result of bugs like AMQ-4116).

In particular, we want to verify that after a large flood of messages is processed and queues
become empty, the memory usage on each queue resets to 0.

The existing MBean for queues/topics shows "MemoryPercentUsage" but not the actual bytes that
the queue thinks it is using.  For large limits, the MemoryPercentUsage can report 0% while
there is actually some memory usage remaining.  In this case, it is difficult to detect leaks
without running many test iterations until the MemoryPercentUsage increments.

Knowing the actual byte count of memory usage is also a more direct way of determining appropriate
limits, since these limits themselves are expressed in bytes.

Attached is a simple patch that adds a "MemoryUsage" attribute to the destination MBean.
