Queue Configuration

The following are example configurations.


<queue name="default">
       <property name="binary">false</property>
       <property name="memory-limit">10000</property>
       <property name="bulk-load">500</property>


Config config = new Config();
QueueConfig queueConfig = config.getQueueConfig();
queueConfig.setName( "MyQueue" ).setBackupCount( "1" )
        .setMaxSize( "0" ).setStatisticsEnabled( "true" );
        .setEnabled ( "true" )
        .setClassName( "com.hazelcast.QueueStoreImpl" )
        .setProperty( "binary", "false" );

It has below elements.

  • max-size: Value of maximum size of items in the Queue.
  • backup-count: Count of synchronous backups. Remember that, Queue is a non-partitioned data structure, i.e. all entries of a Set resides in one partition. When this parameter is '1', it means there will be a backup of that Set in another node in the cluster. When it is '2', 2 nodes will have the backup.
  • async-backup-count: Count of asynchronous backups.
  • empty-queue-ttl: Used to purge unused or empty queues. If you define a value (time in seconds) for this element, then your queue will be destroyed if it stays empty or unused for the time you give.
  • item-listeners: This element lets you add listeners (listener classes) for the queue items. You can also set the attributes include-value to true if you want the item event to contain the item values and local to true if you want to listen the items on the local node.
  • queue-store: Includes the queue store factory class name and the properties binary, memory limit and bulk load. Please refer to Queue Persistence.
  • statistics-enabled: If set as true, you can retrieve statistics for this Queue using the method getLocalQueueStats().
