---------------------------------

             Summary: Problem using 2 or more NetworkConnectors in a single broker with NIO
TransportConnectors
                 Key: AMQ-6197
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AMQ-6197
             Project: ActiveMQ
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Broker
    Affects Versions: 5.12.1
         Environment: RHEL 6.6, java-openjdk-1.7.0 u95
            Reporter: Daniel Hofer


In order to improve CPU usage in a test setup of a network of brokers consisting of 3+ brokers
using the following broker configuration

<broker useJmx="${activemq.expose.jmx}" persistent="false"
    brokerName="${activemq.brokerName}" xmlns="http://activemq.apache.org/schema/core">
    <sslContext>
        <amq:sslContext keyStore="${activemq.broker.keyStore}"
            keyStorePassword="${activemq.broker.keyStorePassword}"
            trustStore="${activemq.broker.trustStore}"
            trustStorePassword="${activemq.broker.trustStorePassword}" />
    </sslContext>
    <systemUsage>
        <systemUsage>
            <memoryUsage>
                <memoryUsage limit="${activemq.memoryUsage}" />
            </memoryUsage>
            <tempUsage>
                <tempUsage limit="${activemq.tempUsage}" />
            </tempUsage>
        </systemUsage>
    </systemUsage>
    <destinationPolicy>
        <policyMap>
            <policyEntries>
                <policyEntry queue=">" enableAudit="false">
                    <networkBridgeFilterFactory>
                        <conditionalNetworkBridgeFilterFactory
                            replayWhenNoConsumers="true" />
                    </networkBridgeFilterFactory>
                </policyEntry>
            </policyEntries>
        </policyMap>
    </destinationPolicy>
    <networkConnectors>
        <networkConnector name="queues"
            uri="static:(${activemq.otherBrokers})"
            networkTTL="2" dynamicOnly="true"
            decreaseNetworkConsumerPriority="true"
            conduitSubscriptions="false">
            <excludedDestinations>
                <topic physicalName=">" />
            </excludedDestinations>
        </networkConnector>
        <networkConnector name="topics"
            uri="static:(${activemq.otherBrokers})"
            networkTTL="1" dynamicOnly="true"
            decreaseNetworkConsumerPriority="true"
            conduitSubscriptions="true">
            <excludedDestinations>
                <queue physicalName=">" />
            </excludedDestinations>
        </networkConnector>
    </networkConnectors>
    <transportConnectors>
        <transportConnector
            uri="${activemq.protocol}${activemq.host}:${activemq.tcp.port}?needClientAuth=true"
            updateClusterClients="true" rebalanceClusterClients="true" />
        <transportConnector
            uri="${activemq.websocket.protocol}${activemq.websocket.host}:${activemq.websocket.port}?needClientAuth=true"
            updateClusterClients="true" rebalanceClusterClients="true" />
    </transportConnectors>
</broker>

we have altered the activemq.protocol placeholder from originally ssl:// to nio+ssl:// and
immediately could observe some CPU improvements (note the same works with tcp:// and nio://).
However after a new deployment we started to encounter weird behavior that some producers
would either get timeouts from their request-reply messages or a "unknown destination exception"
once the reply is being sent on a temp-queue, the issue only happened when the producer and
consumer were connected to different brokers in the network. After some testing we ultimately
found out that after a restart often brokers would not start both network bridges, one for
queues and one for topics, but rather only one of them. For example in a 3 broker setup each
broker usually had 4 network bridges active, 2 for each other broker. However during some
restarts we would see any number of active bridges between 2 and 4, no matter the wait time
the 2nd bridge was never started. The logs also should no output whatsoever, as long as 1
broker was shutdown the other two would output 'connection refused' once he started the would
show either 1 or 2 'successfully reconnected'. 
As soon as we switched back to ssl:// protocol on the transport connector the issue was gone
for good, no matter how many restarts always 4 network bridges would be started in each broker.
Switching back to nio:// the problem is back right away.
For now we are checking if it is worth it starting an additional TransportConnector running
nio:// just for producers and consumers while the network used the tcp:// connector. The documentations
regarding NetworkConnectors usually all use tcp:// or multicast:// in the TransportConnector
the bridges attach to, so we are not entirely sure if nio:// is even supposed to work for
this case or if this is indeed a bug somewhere.
