Subject Re: [DISCUSS] TTL setting on WAN
Date Mon, 25 Mar 2019 23:53:33 GMT
 I think the one approach for a user would be to 'filter' the events while
dispatching. If I remember correctly, we can attach a filter at dispatch
time and filter the events based on creationTime of the GatewayEvent. We
can provide a pre created filter and use it based on some so that user
doesn't have to write his/her own.

Something like,
All the events which spend timeToLive or more time in queue will be deleted
from the queue
and will not be sent to remote site.
Possible consequence is that two sites can be inconsistent in case
public GatewaySenderFactory setEntryTimeToLive(long timeToLive);

As queues will be read in LRU way this would be faster too. Only drawback
is that there will be only one thread (not sure if we have concurrent
dispatcher yet) clearing the queue.

As Udo/Dan mentioned above, user needs to be aware of the consequences.
