Subject [jira] [Commented] (AMQ-5748) Add the ability to get Message Size from a Message Store
Date Tue, 28 Apr 2015 21:09:06 GMT

Christopher L. Shannon commented on AMQ-5748:
---------------------------------------------

Timothy,

It looks pretty straight forwad to check the metadata field and only read in the new size
value for newer versions, else the size value can just be set to 0.  This strategy is followed
by {{StoredDestinationMarshaller}} in a few cases.  However, what is the best way to signal
to force a journal replay? The journal will have to be replayed and the index rebuilt in order
to retrieve the size values again to store them for users who do want to enable this feature
on previously stored messages.

Thanks,
Chris

> Currently, the {{MessageStore}} interface supports getting a count for messages ready
to deliver using the {{getMessageCount}} method.  It would also be very useful to be able
to retrieve the message sizes for those counts as well for keeping track of metrics.
> I've created a pull request to address this that adds a {{getMessageSize}} method that
focuses specifically on KahaDB and the Memory store.  The KahaDB store uses the same strategy
as the existing {{getMessageCount}} method, which is to iterate over the index and total up
the size of the messages.  There are unit tests to show the size calculation and a unit test
that shows a store based on version 5 working with the new version (the index is rebuilt)
> One extra issue is that the size was not being serialized to the index (it was not included
in the marshaller) so that required making a slight change and adding a new marshaller for
{{Location}} to store the size in the location index of the store.  Without this change, the
size computation would not work when the broker was restarted since the size was not serialized.
> Note that I wasn't sure the best way to handle the new marshaller and version compatibilities
so I incremented the KahaDB version from 5 to 6. If an old version of the index is loaded,
the index should be detected as corrupted and be rebuilt with the new format.  If there is
a better way to handle this upgrade let me know and the patch can certainly be updated.
