Just to clarify: it's a swap mechanism in case there is no more room in
*the memory store*, not in memory overall. This is not for paging generic
heap content out to disk if the JVM runs out of heap, etc., and I believe
it's also not for paging out content if you overfill a persistence store
that happens to be backed by memory (though I've not investigated that
specific question). But yes, you understand the overall concept.

In that case, no limit is applied, so you're allowed to write content to
disk right up to the point where the write fails (maybe spectacularly)
because there is no more available space on the volume.

Yes, the warning message disappears because you've taken the safety off and
told the broker that you're on your own, so it allows you to shoot yourself
in the foot if you so choose without trying to help you avoid doing so. The
net effect for you is the same (the broker won't prevent you from filling
the disk in either configuration), but in one case it tells you that
there's a potential for doing that, and in the other it doesn't attempt to
warn you.
