Memory % shows number even when no pending messages are there in a queue

Solution Unverified - Updated -


  • We had around 6000 messages in queue. We purged them via Hawito admin console. After that we noticed that memory column still is showing non-zero value.

  • We expected that when we invoke the MBean Operation 'purge' on a queue, then all the messages from the queue will be removed and will free up the occupied space which is holding the overall, memory %.
