 Description  « Hide

We are having problems with defining a High Available (HA) remote broker setup
(two payloads).

We have following configuration.

  • JMS Hosts (on a traffic instance)
    -> traffic_instance_PL_2_3_JMS_host
    -> traffic_instance_PL_2_4_JMS_host
  • Default JMS Host
    -> traffic_instance_PL_2_3_JMS_host

During startup of an instance ‘transaction-recovery’ is performed for JMS
(before EJBs are loaded).

The implementation in Glassfish is such that it tries to make a connection to
all hosts in the “JMS Hosts� list (also called ‘AddressList’).
So a PL will be waiting/blocking (for a certain time) until the broker on the
other PL is ready.

We have tested a scenario where PL_2_4 was shutdown.
During startup of PL_2_3 we see that the PL_2_3 tries to connect to broker
PL_2_4 for about 2.5 minutes (10 retries).
This happens twice because of 2 connection factories for EventQueue and
This means the traffic instance has a (max) delay of about 5 minutes before it
continues (with loading of EJB’s).

As far as can be see there are no configuration parameters to influence this
behavior for “transactions-recovery�.

Can you please indicate on how to setup a working REMOTE broker setup.

server.log PL_2_3 show the retry attempts to non active broker PL_2_4

Forgot to mention that startup of broker also can take quite a while. We would
like to know why this is the case (added special logfile which shows this).

updated priority to P3, we still don't have a HA broker setup !!

The time required for the initial start up can be easily changed by reducing
the following values in the jms-service element of domain.xml

reconnect-interval-in-seconds to say 1 sec
reconnect-attempts to say 1
addresslist-iterations to a lower value of 1
