To mark all activities of a resource adaptor entity for removal, use the following rhino-console command or related MBean operation.

Use extreme care when removing forcibly

Occasionally an administrator will want to remove all activities belonging to a resource adaptor entity. Typically, this would be to deactivate a resource adaptor when upgrading or reconfiguring. Under normal conditions, these actions would be performed automatically, by allowing existing activities to drain over time. Rhino provides the following housekeeping commands to forcibly speed up the draining process, although these should be used with extreme care on production systems — they will interrupt service for any existing network activities belonging to the resource adaptor entity.

Console command: removeallactivities


removeallactivities <ra-entity> [-nodes node1,node2,...]
    Remove all activities belonging to a resource adaptor entity in the Stopping
    state (on the specified nodes)


To remove all activities owned by the resource adaptor entity called sipra on nodes 101 and 102:

$ ./rhino-console removeallactivities sipra -nodes 101,102
Activities marked for removal on node(s) [101,102]

MBean operation: markAllActivitiesForRemoval


Rhino operation

public void markAllActivitiesForRemoval(String entityName, int[] nodeIDs)
    throws NullPointerException, UnrecognizedResourceAdaptorEntityException,
          InvalidStateException, ManagementException;

This operation marks all the activities owned by the given resource adaptor entity on the given nodes for removal.

Resource adaptor entity (or SLEE) must be STOPPING

As a safeguard, this command (or MBean operation) cannot be run unless the specified resource adaptor entity, or the SLEE, is in the STOPPING state on the specified nodes. (It may also be run against nodes where the resource adaptor entity is in the INACTIVE state (or the SLEE is in the STOPPED state) for convenience in asymmetric cluster configurations, but has no effect against such nodes since no activities exist for the resource adaptor entity on nodes where it is INACTIVE (or the SLEE is STOPPED).)

Why "mark" (instead of just ending)?

This command does not remove all activities immediately, because that might overload the system (from processing too many activity-end events at once). Instead, removeallactivities marks targeted activities as ENDING. Marked activities end over the course of the next pass of the activity query-liveness scan (typically, with the default settings, each scan lasts three-to-five minutes).
