I’m not a Broker user myself, but am working with a client who has an older version (4.x) and who is using it to get data to my application.
We would like to have my development environment subscribe to the production message feeds, but have encountered a problem:
If the development database is down, which happens periodically, the message queues get too large and crash the Broker. This is undesirable for a production messaging system!
What I’d like to do is to have the broker (for this particular subscriber) limit the queue size and toss additional messages out.
Does anyone have a way to do this? I apologize if my question is poorly worded, but as I said this is second hand from my client.
