Why did a clustered qpid broker shut down after a network problem?

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • Running MRG / qpid brokers in a cluster
  • Some or all qpid brokers terminating unexpectedly

For example,

  • We met some networking problems for around 2 seconds. Several seconds later, the whole qpid cluster went down with the following message being logged:
critical Error delivering frames: Cluster timer drop non-existent task ManagementAgent::periodicProcessing
  • One broker went down with a log entry
critical Error delivering frames: Unknown connection: Frame[BEbe; channel=0; {MessageFlushBody: destination=1; }] data read-credit=1 (qpid/cluster/Cluster.cpp:542)


  • MRG Messaging (any version)
  • corosync (any version)
