Default Thank you for the clarification!

What we are seeing is that one Mirth instance forwarding MLLP messages to a second Mirth instance gradually slows down and grinds to a halt, enqueuing messages on the first instance. We are on version

We have a simple example that demonstrates this in a local development environment. It appears that enabling the 'Keep Connection Open' option will cause the failure to occur after several thousand messages.

However, when we opt *not* to keep the connection open, it takes several tens of thousands of messages to be sent before the slowdown occurs and the queue expands. So, it's better, but still a problem.

To drain the queue we have to redeploy the channel to the sender Mirth instance, or restart it entirely.

Can you provide any suggestions about what might cause such behavior?

Thanks for your time,
David Jantzen
