Subject Receiving old messages on durable topics after application restart using ActiveMQ two node cluster
Date Fri, 06 Nov 2009 16:20:24 GMT


We are running a two node cluster of ActiveMQ 5.2. Our application uses
durable persistent topics, it is both the producer and consumer of the
messages. The application is configured using the failover:// protocol to
work with the cluster nodes. The JMS client uses Spring for configuration,
it's done as described here:

It all runs fine. But when the application is restarted we start receiving
old messages that have been consumed in the past. The age of the messages
seems to correspond to the time of the last restart (for example: 20 days).
We suspect the cluster nodes are replicating and storing the messages
correctly but the node that the app is using is not marking the messages as
'consumed' on the other node. When on restart the other node is chosen it
starts sending all messages that were consumed the last run on the other
node. Is there anything we might have missed in configuration?

Kind regards,
