Subject Re: DOS attack on activemq setup
Date Mon, 13 Apr 2015 14:10:50 GMT
I just thought of another case where broker can be crashed. This is a case
where a rogue app sends copious amount of persistent messages with no
consumer and causes disk space to fill up making the broker unavailable.

I am using multiKahaDB in my setup and have grouped it based on destination
patterns (a logical grouping of related destinations). But the kind of
scenario I have described can be prevented from affecting other applications
If I can put size limit on each of multiKahaDB persistent adapter separately
otherwise one multiKahaDB can use entire remaining space for itself. That
way broker won't run out of space for all destinations but only a group of
destinations thus preventing  the crash of entire setup.

Is there any KahaDB configuration already present which will help in this
