Incorrect message count exposed in JMX

Solution Verified - Updated -


It seems that the number of stored messages exposed in JMX (TotalMessageCount in Broker) is incorrect.

See the attached file where TotalMessageCount is 1457671 and does not match at all the number of messages in all the queues (sum is 24576).

How can this be?

FWIW, this broker is part of a four nodes network of brokers.

  • Fuse ESB Enterprise 7.X
  • JBoss Fuse 6.0, 6.1
  • JBoss A-MQ 6.0, 6.1
