Error description

  • In Websphere Application Server 8.5.5.11 it is possible that
    expired SIB messages might not be deleted after a Messaging
    Engine failure. This may lead to a situation in which the queue
    depth will show a wrong message queue depth and also the
    messages maybe can not be deleted anymore
    

Local fix

  • You can fix the problem temporary by restarting all messaging
    engine servers.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server that experience a messaging engine   *
    *                  restart while messages that can             *
    *                  expire are on a destination                 *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: After a messaging engine fails and      *
    *                      restarts, expired messages might not    *
    *                      be correctly processed or removed.      *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    Messaging engine failure and restart might leave the old
    expirer in scope, and so a new expirer instance isn't created.
    As a result, expired messages cannot be properly processed by
    the outdated expirer.
