Subject [jira] [Created] (AMQ-4790) Avoid thread creation storm after machine suspend/resume
Date Tue, 08 Oct 2013 07:46:09 GMT
metatech created AMQ-4790:

             Summary: Avoid thread creation storm after machine suspend/resume
                 Key: AMQ-4790
             Project: ActiveMQ
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Broker
    Affects Versions: 5.5.1
         Environment: ServiceMix 4.4.2
            Reporter: metatech
            Priority: Minor

My ActiveMQ broker is running and I suspend my PC.  When I resume the machine the next day
or (much worse) after a week-end, my PC is busy at 100% CPU for a few minutes.  Because many
threads are busy in parallel, the PC is completely unresponsive and the even the mouse cursor
can hardly move.
I had noticed that it only happens when my ServiceMix is started, and when the embedded ActiveMQ
broker is configured with a JDBC persistence adapter.
After investigating in the code, I found out that the "lock keep alive" feature uses the "scheduleWithFixedDelay"
to update a DB lock every 30 seconds.  When the PC is resumed, this generates a "backlog"
of thousands of calls.  It is better to use "scheduleWithFixedDelay" instead, which waits
until the previous calls has finished before firing a new one.
