Subject Timers stop firing after certain unpredictable interval
Date Fri, 04 Feb 2011 04:50:12 GMT


There is a issue with using timers, I have tried both timer and quartz timer
to process a spring bean method using Camel 2.4.0 and Camel 2.6.0 on tomcat
6 container using spring

Observation is timer stops processing after certain unpredictable interval,
the service method is not getting called anymore, along with this all other
routes also do not respond to events and messages keep piling up.

This is causing entire processing to come at standstill unless server is
restarted. If the timer route is removed things work well as they are
supposed to be. 

Endpoint for Quartz: quartz://timerName?cron=0+*+18-8+?+*+MON-SAT
Endpoint for Timer: timer://foo?fixedRate=true&period=60000

Furthermore a smaller issue which has already been raised in this forum is
these timers cause tomcat to hang and it wont shutdown gracefully.
