    HornetQ hangs producing messages - investigating possible causes including NullPointerException

    Christian Janiake Newbie

      Hi all,

       

      We are using HornetQ version 2.2.5, with no automatic failover, and from time to time our system hangs trying to enqueue messages.

      We expected that the mechanism would report the failure as we have the following configuration:

      client-failure-check-period = 30000

      connection-ttl = 60000

      and callTimeout = 2000

       

      However, the send command is not returning any error.

      On the Hornet log, we found this exception, that we believe may be the cause of the problem:

      This other exception also happens sometimes:

      If necessary, we can post the entire log file for analysis.

      We appreciate any help, thank you.
