Subject Re: tracing stuck messages in network of brokers
Date Thu, 22 May 2008 03:09:16 GMT

What do you have networkTTL set at?

Also, depending on how the brokers are interconnected, you may want to
consider setting dynamicOnly to true; this ensures that messages are only
routed to brokers with active consumers. 

Careful using 'duplex' bridges between brokers in combination with high
networkTTL settings. Messages will bounce around needlessly. This has been
patched, but make sure you have it.

Hope this helps,
