Transport Failed Message in Broker Log

The Broker log is full of Transport failed -  Channel was inactive for too long messages.

Message Example:
INFO: Transport failed: serviceTransportException
INFO: Transport failed: com.itko.activemq.transport.InactivityIOException: Channel was inactive for too long: /

Where: is an IP and port combination.


When starting the broker, a few of these messages is normal.
However, several thousand messages indicate the broker recovering from a corrupt solr cache.


All supported DevTest platforms.


  • Shut down all DevTest components 
  • Delete or move lisatmpX.1 logs folder . 
  • Delete the DEVTEST_HOME/searchData/solr directory. This directory is a db cache and was, most likely, corrupted by the orphaned Broker. 
  • Restart DevTest components and the solr directory will be recreated. 

If the above does not resolve the issue, there is a possibility that a process running an agent has become unstable. 
To check for this:
  • Open the ATK and connect to the Registry
  • For each agent, turn Pathfinder Off by clicking on the first icon next to each agents name.
  • As each agent has Pathfinder turned off, check the broker log to see if the issue is resolved.
  • If all agents have Pathfinder turned off and the issue is still present, starting checking for orphaned processes on each agent machine.
