Subject Re: Potential Bug in Master-Slave with Replicated LevelDB Store
Date Fri, 17 Oct 2014 16:31:10 GMT
masterslave: is an alias for failover: with maxReconnects=0.  (There might
be another URI option included in the alias, I don't remember; I think the
details are in the JIRA where Gary added the failover transport, if you're
curious.)  So there's no need to try using failover explicitly, since the
configuration you're using already used the URI option I was concerned

That's strange that you're seeing different throughput (based on different
numbers of pending messages) based on which direction messages flow between
the clusters.  It might be due to the network issues you referenced; if
not, then hopefully you can figure out which link is the slow one by
finding the last point where messages are piling up.  Is there a
non-trivial amount of latency (more that 15ms, let's say) on any of the
links between brokers or the links between clients and brokers?  I've had
to do quite a bit of tuning to get ActiveMQ to run efficiently across a
high-latency WAN, so if you have a bad network link in your setup you may
need to make some adjustments to improve throughput.

Also, just to confirm: were you comparing pending queue sizes based on
which role (producer-side or consumer-side) the cluster was being used for
your test?  (So comparing amq1-3 in your first setup with amq4-6 in your
second setup and vice versa.)  Make sure your comparisons were apples to
apples between the tests, otherwise the conclusion of lower throughput
might not be valid.
