Subject Re: Consumer not able to consumer messages from queue
Date Tue, 13 Jan 2015 21:52:51 GMT
Mmm, I misunderstood what you'd written about where the bottleneck was
occurring.  Based on what you've said, it sounds like maybe your cursor is
getting full of messages for which no consumer exists (maybe because
they're in a session that was already closed?) and therefore the broker
can't pull out any of the messages matching the selectors of consumers that
are actually connected.  That's pure speculation on my part, but it might
be what's going on.  But it can only explain the problem if message TTL
wasn't being set (or was being set to a very large value, such that your
messages weren't expiring fast enough).  Can you browse the queue and
inspect the messages on it and confirm that the JMSExpiration header really
is set and that it's set to a value that's what you expect?  If it's set,
then my guess is probably wrong, but if it's not, then fix the code that's
trying to set it and see if this problem disappears...
