-    On deletion of active Port all opened connections remain opened until they are closed by the clients or Broker is shutdown
-    or connection Virtual Hosts are deleted or stopped. When Port is deleted with active connections, the creation of another Port
-    having the same port number as deleted one fails.
+        Following deletion of an active Port, the port remains bound until the Broker is restarted. You should restart the broker
+        immediately if you require preventing new connections on the port or disconnecting existing clients.
