MSMQ - Can we delete outgoing message queues? Lifecycle?



Hi, We want to make disappear the outgoing message queues to be sure that our app wouldn't use them anymore. If Outgoing Message Queues are temporary, when does it disappear from compmgmt.msc when they are suspended and cleared, and the application only uses local message queues afterword? What is their lifecycle? Is there a way to delete them? Best Regards,

Dear sebastienrenaud,

is this question about the Windows MSMQ Queue Length sensor? That sensor shows the current queue length. From PRTG's side, the queue cannot be cleared.

Thank you for your answer. Our question is about MSMQ itself. We are looking for the reason the Manager keeps the queue live and does not remove it. It might be that there were unwanted subscriptions in our subscription store but it could be for another reason. Regards,

Dear Sebastien,

this would be a question for Microsoft, as we (Paessler) develop PRTG.

Hi, We also asked this question to Microsoft, but we also post it on other forums. Thank you for your support. Best Regards,
