Subject Re: [DISCUSS] TTL setting on WAN
Date Mon, 25 Mar 2019 21:32:03 GMT
I've walked through the code to forward expiration actions to async 
event listeners & don't see how to apply it to removal of queue entries 
for WAN.  The current implementation just queues the expiration 
actions.  If we wanted to remove any queued events associated with the 
expired region entry we'd have to scan the whole queue, which would be 
too slow if we're overflowing the queue to disk.

I've also walked through the conflation code.  It applies only to the 
current batch being processed by the gateway sender.  The data structure 
used to perform conflation is just a Map that is created in the sender's 
batch processing method and then thrown away.
