Subject Re: ActiveMQ ResourceAllocationException is delayed?
Date Wed, 31 Jul 2013 12:52:32 GMT
Could it be that jconsole wasn't refreshing as often as you had expected?
ie, if you manually refresh, does it show the updated values? The memory
counters should not have a lag as they are updated as messages are coming
in and going out in real time.
