Subject [jira] [Created] (AMQ-5125) Broker and clients hang
Date Fri, 28 Mar 2014 13:45:18 GMT
Albert Barmettler created AMQ-5125:

             Summary: Broker and clients hang
                 Key: AMQ-5125
             Project: ActiveMQ
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 5.9.0
         Environment: Windows 7
ActiveMQ 5.9.0 with LevelDB storage adapter enabled
            Reporter: Albert Barmettler
            Priority: Blocker

JMS clients start to hang after a while in calls such as session.createObjectMessage(). Both
the broker and the hanging clients can't be easily shut down when this happens - only forcefully
applied kill's do the job.

I'm using queues and transactional sessions. All clients (producers and consumers) are in
the same Java VM. There is only one JMS connection between the application and the broker.
Each client has its own session, but they all share the same connection.

Normally, the data directory of the LevelDb contains only a few log files. But in my case,
the number of log files is steadily increasing.

Furthermore, I was able to track down the issue to following circumstance: The problem only
occurs, when consumers do a rollback instead of a commit when they receive the message. The
rollback / redelivery works as expected - the same message is received again after a previous

As far as I can tell, the problem does not occur with KahaDb.

I'll attach a test program that provokes the error. It sets up a few hundred queues, consumers
and producers. The consumers just receive the message and commit the session, but they also
do "random" rollbacks. It can be observed immediately that the number of files starts increasing
in the data directory. After a few minutes, the clients hang - sometimes sooner, sometimes
later. I'll also attach the config file for the broker.

I am aware, that heavy rollbacking should not happen in normal operation. But from a long
term stability this is a blocker for us.
