dlqDeliveryFailureCause Message Expired and deadLetterStrategy
We're running 5.15.3 and we're using
<https://github.com/ARGOeu/nagios-plugins-activemq/> for monitoring
(SSL'ed) OpenWire. Healthchecks fail and to not get our aliveness-check
queue filled with old messages we added TTL via
We got one DLQ'd OpenWire check message and just discarded it but when
we got the second one I started to investigate.
The message which got put into the DLQ has the propery:
dlqDeliveryFailureCause java.lang.Throwable: Message Expired.
Our configuration related to the queue aliveness-test in activemq.xml
Tell the dead letter strategy not to process expired messages
so that they will just be discarded instead of being sent to
<sharedDeadLetterStrategy processExpired="false" />
I just noticed a bug that our TTL is set to 60ms (instead of seconds)
but that's just how fast ActiveMQ is ; ) So I don't think that's
So what we expect is for those messages to just get deleted but instead
we they get DLQ'd into ActiveMQ.DLQ (since no DLQ is configured).
Thanks and have a great weekend!
