Subject Re: Is it possible to retrieve more than 400 messages from ActiveMQ queue via Jolokia API?
Date Tue, 16 Apr 2019 14:22:12 GMT
that maxBrowsePageSize limit is exposed as a destination policyEntry,
you can raise it very high and then a browse will be limited by the
memory usage limits.
the point of the limit is that the messages are dispatched from
memory, there is no browser implementations that will query the
message store and paginate the messages, it is simply a limited view
the head of the queue.
Artemis does a better job in allowing a browser to consume the entire queue.
