Subject Some messages are undelivered in a queue using Message Groups
Date Tue, 05 Feb 2013 17:45:16 GMT
I am experiencing an issue where a small percentage of messages seem to get
stuck in the message queue, and don't ever get processed.  When looking at
the queue of messages (in the admin web console), the "Redelivered" column
says "false" for these messages.

I'm not sure how to debug why these messages aren't getting consumed.

I'm using the following setup:

 - Apache ActiveMQ 5.5.1
 - Camel / Spring / Java is used for message consuming
 - Using "Message Groups" to ensure message ordering based on username

**The consumer is setup as follows:**

    @Consume(uri =
        public void consume(Event event) {
          // ... processing of event code here ... //

**The producer is setup as follows:**

    import org.apache.camel.EndpointInject;
    import org.apache.camel.ProducerTemplate;

    // ... //

    @EndpointInject(uri =
    private ProducerTemplate sender;

    public void emit(final Event e) {
        // Set message group based on username
sender.sendBodyAndHeader(e, "JMSXGroupID", e.getUser().getUsername());

The stalled out messages seem to correspond to when the consumer queue is
somewhat slow, but not extremely slow.  By slow, I mean taking 2 seconds
instead of 1 second, so I doubt this is really an issue.

Does anyone have any ideas why this might occur, and how to better diagnose?
