16:12:56,614 WARN  [BrokerService] Store limit is 102400 mb, whilst the data directory: /home/testuser/jboss-eap-5.2/jboss-as/server/TestServer/data/activemq only has 18507 mb of usable space

  • How to avoid the above warning messages to appear in JBoss logs ?

  <bean class="org.springframework.beans.factory.config.PropertyPlaceholderConfigurer">     
  <broker xmlns="" useJmx="true" useShutdownHook="false" brokerName="TestBroker">
       <managementContext createConnector="true"/>
       <kahaDB directory="${}/activemq"/>
      <transportConnector name="TestBroker" uri="tcp://" discoveryUri="multicast://default" />
