Subject Broker often randomly dies
Date Tue, 17 Jun 2008 06:17:16 GMT

I've been using ActiveMQ for a few months now. Recently I have been
experiencing a lot of random crashes. It has been happening as often as
every few hours. When I say that it has been crashing, I mean that the
process no longer exists. I've checked the logs and there is nothing in
there about it dying or being shut down.

I have a pretty default install of ActiveMQ 5.0 on Debian 4.0 and run it
with the following command:
"nohup ./activemq > /var/log/activemq_log &". Regarding the server, it has
1gb of memory and the only other thing that it is running is a PHP consumer
process that is utilizing minimal CPU and memory. I'm not sure if this is a
memory issue or not.

I'm really running out of ideas as to why it's dying. Sometimes it'll run
for 2 weeks straight with no issues, and then die 2 or 3 times in one day.
Then it's fine again. I don't have any master/slave architecture set up yet.
Is this something that I should invest time into? Also, is there a
recommended way of automatically restarting the broker when it dies?
