Subject RE: Getting Usage Manager Memory Limit reached message on the topic
Date Thu, 21 Apr 2011 15:19:59 GMT
Is your consumer setup to be a durable subscriber by any chance?
Before: Your broker received a message for the topic, it has no subscribers for it so throws
the message away.
Now: Your broker receives a message for the topic, it knows that it has a subscriber who wants
to be sent the messages when it reconnects, so keeps the message, using up all your memory.

If your subscriber isn't configured to be durable, then if it isn't connected it won't get
the messages, when it reconnects it only gets newly arrived messages.
