Is Message Driven Bean (MDB) restrained by the thread-pool definition in "ejb3" subsystem ?

Solution Unverified - Updated -


  • There is a default thread-pool definition in ejb3 subsystem, is Message Driven Bean (MDB) restrained by this ?
                <thread-pool name="default">
                    <max-threads count="10"/>
                    <keepalive-time time="100" unit="milliseconds"/>

  • Is there a way of monitoring MDB's in JBOSS EAP6.X.
  • We would like to monitor MDB pools defined and want to see if we are having issues. We also want to know what kind of errors we would see if MDB pools are exhausted.
