Subject [jira] [Created] (QPID-3613) Management of message credits should be on a per subscription basis (not on a per session basis)

Management of message credits should be on a per subscription basis (not on a per session basis)

                 Key: QPID-3613
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/QPID-3613
             Project: Qpid
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Java Client
    Affects Versions: 0.14
            Reporter: Rajith Attapattu
            Assignee: Rajith Attapattu
             Fix For: 0.15

We currently calculate credit replenishment at the session level completely ignoring the capacity
of each individual subscription. Further more as per QPID-3612 the completions are tied to
message-acks further complicating the issue.

The general formula used for calculating the replenishment rate is as follows. 
if (unackedCount >= prefetch/2 || maxAckDelay <= 0 || _acknowledgeMode == javax.jms.Session.AUTO_ACKNOWLEDGE)

There are several issues with this.

1. If the application doesn't ack (in CLIENT_ACK) or commit a transaction before it exhaust
the credits, the consumer will starve. See QPID-3612. A recent change done in rev 1195213
fixes the TX case.

2. Ineffective flow control as the calculation happens globally at the session level instead
at the subscription level. Due to this, slow consumers can affect fast consumers.

Ex . Assume there are two fast consumers and a slow consumer each with an individual capacity
of 20 and the max_prefetch for the connection to be 100. The threshold for sending acks (and
therefore completions) is 50. If the fast consumers have already done with their 20 messages,
they will have to wait for the slow consumer to do atleast 10 messages before the threshold
is hit.
