Subject Re: Slow consumer problem
Date Thu, 08 Jun 2006 01:54:28 GMT

I verified that the messages are persistent, but I'm still not having much
luck finding the problem.  I didn't try building with the patch yet, but as
a short term work around I just turned off journaling in the configuration.
Even with journalling off, I still have the problem.

FYI, here's a sample message from the debug:

21:33:19,099 DEBUG [ActiveMQSession] Sending message: ActiveMQObjectMessage

I don't know if makes a difference, but I'm using the AMQ RAR in Jboss to
start a VM broker.  In the code I then do this:

     theFactory = new ActiveMQConnectionFactory("vm://localhost");

to create the factory, then this to create and start my connections:

      myConnection = (ActiveMQConnection)

Everything seems to work fine as long as I don't have slow consumers.  Once
the consumers slow down or stop, the producers grind to a halt.

Is it possible I have 2 vm://localhost brokers?  i.e. I can see one created
when the RAR starts, but it almost looks like it's starting another one when
I call new ActiveMQConnectionFactory("vm://localhost").  Is that possible or
will it automatically use the broker created from the RAR?  If it is
creating another one, how do I get it to use the broker I configured in the

Just messing with the factory configuration I found that when I call
setObjectMessageSerializationDefered(true) on the factory, the producers run
without a problem (I was able to load up 500K messages).  However, later,
when I restart the consumers to read the messages, they all come back as
null objects to the consumers.  So I guess deferring it isn't good when you
have persistence on?  As a side note, is there a place where all those
factory configuration options are documented?  There isn't anything in the
Javadocs and I couldn't find the info elsewhere yet.

Any suggestions on what to try next?
