[Satellite6] /var/lib/qpidd disk usage grows over time, esp. after qpidd restart

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • noticed that /var/lib/qpidd/ directory content grows over time
  • qpid-stat -q (with SSL arguments) shows a constant number of queues and no queue having a (big) backlog of messages
  • an evident increase of disk space usage happens during qpidd restart (or within katello-service restart or foreman-maintain service restart that both trigger the one service restart)


  • Red Hat Satellite 6
  • qpid-cpp-server-linearstore of version 1.36.0-24 or older
