Re: ActiveMQ or Artemis
The source of my statement was the ActiveMQ to Artemis migration guide (
https://activemq.apache.org/artemis/migration/index.html), which states the
"The whole message journal is kept in memory and messages are dispatched
directly from it. When we run out of memory, messages are paged on the
producer side(before they hit the broker). Theay are stored in sequential
page files in the same order as they arrived. Once the memory is freed,
messages are moved from these page files into the journal. With paging
working like this, messages are read from the file journal only when the
broker starts up, in order to recreate this in-memory version of the
journal. In this case, the journal is only read sequentially, meaning that
there's no need to keep an index of messages in the journal. This is one of
the main differences between ActiveMQ 5.x and Artemis."
If that description isn't accurate, the migration guide needs to be
