[zeromq-dev] Relation between - HI_WATER_MARK and SEND_BUFFER_SIZE of zmq ?

Thanks a lot for the reply.

Yes, I do care for messages and want to store them to database(PostgreSql) so that I will not lose messages when  the process crashes.
Is there any existing pattern of zmq that will help me  to store the queued messages to database ?

I want a simple request-reply type application with single client and single server.

The requirement is - The messages should be queued in case of network failure / no receipt of acknowledgement from sever, and should get stored to databse after some limit.

This implementation is to be developed at client-side.

Please let me know if any existing zmq pattern will be of help in this scenario.

Thanks & Regards,
Santosh d.

HWM is related to the max number of messages in the queue. Send buffer size is related to the max size of the message allowed to send. If HWM is set to infinite (-1), your process will eventually crash. Once it crashes, you lose all the messages in the queue. Do you have some way of recovering? Do you care if you lose messages?

H i,

I want to develop an client application that will send messages to the server and receive acknowledgments from the server.

The client keep getting data form real-time devices and want to send the same to the server.

The problem is if the network is down, the client application should maintain a Queue of messages and send to server when the network is up and connection becomes active.

It is a single-client to single-server application.

Can this be achieved just by using HI WATER MARK = INFINITE    ?

Can the  HI_WATER_MARK option maintain a message queue which is bigger than size of SEND_BUFFER_SIZE ?

Is there any dependency between HI_WATER_MARK  and SEND_BUFFER_SIZE  of zmq ?

Kindly reply and help.
