Subject [jira] [Commented] (AMQ-4212) Broker may be unable to recover durable topic subscription from the kahadb journal
Date Fri, 18 Jan 2013 17:32:14 GMT


Timothy Bish commented on AMQ-4212:

Fixing this is a bit tricky and would involve tracking the location of the subscription commands
in the log files for the StoredDestination and the durable subs associated with each.  The
downside here is that you can start retaining log files for only that one subscription command
which isn't really ideal.  

Fixing this might lead down the path of needing periodic compaction or a means at least of
triggering one otherwise its quite hard to control how much wasted spaced you'd have for the

> KahaDB is supposed to recover its index from the journal *completely*. 
> Such recovery can be enforced by stopping the broker, deleting the index file
and restarting the broker. 
> The recovery process may however not be able to recover inactive durable topic subscriptions.

> This is because the kahadb cleanup task will not consider any active subscription entries
in the journal files when marking journal files for deletion. 
> E.g. If a durable sub info was written to e.g. the journal file db-1.log but kahadb has
already rolled over to writing to db-2.log, the cleanup task may delete db1.log (in case all
msgs in db1.log got acked). The durable sub however is still alive. 
> When stopping the broker this durable sub info is still present in the index file and
will be restored at broker restart.
> If however the index file gets deleted in order to enforce a recovery of the index from
the journal, then the broker has lost the information about this durable sub.
> The broker is therefore not able to recover its state fully from the journal files.
> If the durable subscriber remains inactive (i.e. does not reconnect to broker immediately
after broker restart), it may miss messages as the broker has no knowledge of this durable
