Subject Re: Memory usage with large messages
Date Thu, 08 Nov 2012 11:46:47 GMT
There will be a single copy of the message but it will by default get
marshaled in parallel due to asyncDispatch. So there may be multiple
marshall buffers in existence for the message send via the proxy
consumers in the network connectors.

asyncDispatch is good because it means that a slow consumer will not
block dispatch to other consumers but it will contribute to the memory

If the memory limits allow, on the send, the message will be retained
in memory and dispatched from memory.

It would be great to get a handle on why the stomp clients on the spoke die?
is it inactivity timeout?
