> As well as some previous issues  I have some problems with my Artemis cluster. My setup  is a symmetric two node cluster of colocated instances with scaledown. As well as the node restart causing a problematic state in replication  there are other issues, namely:

Heap dump analysis would indicate that this is due to cluster connection failing and millions of messages would end up in the internal store-and-forward queue causing an eventual OOM exception - I guess the internal messages are not paged?
You can configure it to paging...
Also.. on cluster conneciton you can configure the max-retry of the
I'm not talking about replication here. .this is probably about
another node that still connected.
> 2) I have now run the cluster for ~2 weeks and the cluster has ended up in a state where messages are being redistributed from node 1 to node 2 BUT not the other way around. This can be the same issue as 1) but I cannot tell for sure. I tried setting the core server logging level to DEBUG on node 2 and sending messages to a test topic but I get no references to the address name in Artemis logs.
Check what I talked about reconnects on cluster connection.
If you were using master.. there's a way you can consume messages from
the internal queue.. and send them manually using producer /
consumer.. you will need to get a snapshot from master.
> I realize that it's difficult to address these problems given the information at hand and due to the problematic nature of the circumstances in which they occur: they (excl. the issue described in ) start to appear after running a cluster for a long time and there's no apparent cause or easy way of replication. I would however appreciate if anyone has tips to debug this issue further or has advice on where to look for a probable cause.
