      Description

      I am raising this JIRA to ask the JBoss Messaging Team to take ownership of this issue.

      The issue is that JBM intermittently (ie. when processing large amounts of messages, when bringing up/shutting down nodes in a cluster) throws a HeuristicMixedException. Once it does, that node in the cluster is effectively dead. No more messages get processed. My app has multiple queues, but once one queue on the node fails (say, the e-mail queue) then all queues stop working (say, the reports queues): they all report HeuristicMixedException whenever a messages is sent to them.

      I am using a workaround by having a separate monitoring program that reboots the node whenever it gets stuck in this HeuristicMixedException state.

      The JBoss ESB team have also had to implement a workaround: https://jira.jboss.org/jira/browse/JBESB-2484

      Others on the forum are seeing this too: http://www.jboss.org/index.html?module=bb&op=viewtopic&p=4241134#4241134

      According to Kevin Conner of the ESB team, Howard worked with them on a workaround: https://jira.jboss.org/jira/browse/JBPAPP-1642, but the issue persists.
