Subject Re: Performance degrade issue using ActiveMQ scheduler
Date Wed, 27 May 2015 16:17:31 GMT
Hi Tim,
sorry for the late response, but we spent the last days to make the
"workaround" working well.

To be honest, I misunderstood your suggestion: I understood to create more
scheduled queue and this is way we continue to have the problem. We cannot
follow your approach because the incoming messages are created from an
external application that has its own life-cycle and instructs our
application using the messages themselves.

At the end our "workaround" is very simple:
- we use multiple ActiveMQ support queues and we put in every support queue
the messages that have the same time-window
- every support queue has one polling consumer attached: the consumer
verifies if the processing time is arrived and in case starts to forward the
messages to the queue T

with this solution we are able to match the requirements that we had.
Next steps are
1. create a Camel component in order to be able to reuse the solution in
others projects.
2. return to analyse the ActiveMQ behavior

probably, you are right: we stressed them to their limit. But for sure the
system has to return to work correctly after the use of the scheduled-area

P.S. thanks, also for all the hint related to VisualVM
