Subject Loss of dispatched messages
Date Tue, 23 Dec 2008 10:08:36 GMT

Hi All,

Hopefully an easy one...we have a pub/sub setup with a bunch of Groovy
consumers using the Java client to listen to a bunch of topics.  We
terminate these by literally killing the process.  When we do this, we seem
to lose any dispatched messages that have not yet been processed.  That is
to say, if the web console shows Dispatched Queue size = 1,000 messages,
after restart, we seem to be 1,000 messages short, if I'm reading the web
console correctly.

Does that make sense?  Is there just a configuration entry I can set which
says 'Do not consider a message delivered until the consumer has actually
dealt with it' which will make these messages get processed upon startup of
the consumer?

I've tried looking throught the docs, but I haven't had much luck.

Thanks in advance,
