Subject Reply:Re: What will happen if consumer uses the client acknowledge model but no further explicit acknowledges are made?
Date Mon, 24 Dec 2012 01:57:32 GMT
Thanks chris, in fact I know what these metrics mean.
Here I just want to make sure the consequence of my use case where 
my consumer only receives messages but not ack them at all(via the 
client acknowledge model).Because the broker need track the messages 
that are dispatched to the consumer and not acked by the consumer all
the time so the dispatched queue size keeps increasing.
When lots of messages(supposing there are many pending messages 
for dispatch) are dispatched to the consumer the memory consumption 
in the broker will exceed the memory limit of the queue at last, the dispatch 
job will pause for waiting for available memory space.

Hope someone can correct my judgement.
