Subject ActiveMQ consumers stop accepting messages
Date Wed, 12 Mar 2014 23:10:07 GMT

I have two ActiveMQ 5.8 instances setup in a network of brokers. Each
instance is hosted on a separate machine running Ubuntu 12.04 with 8GB of
memory. After one week in production, we started seeing consumers that
wouldn't accept messages. In the web console I can see the messages enqueue
and messages in the dispatch queue, but the messages are never consumed in
the server application. Restarting the consumer doesn't fix the problem.
When I tried restarting the ActiveMQ instance it failed to shutdown --
needed to kill -9 the pid.

I believe the problem is on the broker or in the CMS library, but I can't
seem to track it down. Has anyone seen a problem like this before?
