      Description

      I think I found case that is not handled by the fix AMQ-3316. We see memory leaks connected to this bug and after good amount of headbanging I think the problem is in how two methods work together - processMessagePull and trackBack. The first one has this piece of code:

        // leave a single instance in the cache
                  final String id = pull.getDestination() + "::" + pull.getConsumerId();
                  messageCache.put(id.intern(), pull);
      

      while the second one unconditionally increases the currentCacheSize - regardless if the previous method added or replaced entry in the cache.

      The situation where entries will be replaced (and not added) and the currentCacheSize will grow very fast until it wraps around and becomes negative is the following:

      • have some logic that frequently creates queue browser and iterates through all the entries
      • have the queue most of the time with at least one message. The more messages in the queue the faster currentCacheSize grows.

      The reason is that processMessagePull reuses the consumer and destination ID for each browsed message in the queue when org.apache.activemq.ActiveMQQueueBrowser#hasMoreElements is invoked. trackBack is ignorant of this and keeps adding to the size regardless that the cache size stays the same.

      Here is log from reproducing the issue as a proof:

      One can see that the garbage collection works well (cache does not grow) but the currentCacheSize keeps increasing
      Unfortunately I cannot easily extract the original code and provide it. Hope the explanation is clear enough.
