[Spread-users] How to determine if message sent to a group was delivered to a consumer

Hi All,


I am investigating the uses of Spread for a project I am working on and have been successfully able to deliver messages  from the producer to the spread messaging system and retrieve them.

To publish a message to the spread system and find out if any subscribers received it (i.e. it is important that the message is processed).

If I publish a message and there are no subscribers to the group where it was published to, the message is dropped on the floor (or so I believe)... I have confirmed this behaviour by starting a separate instance of my test program and joining the group where the message was delivered to and seeing if any messages existed (there wasn't any).

I believe this is probably an elementary question and would appreciate any help. My setup is defined as follows;

System Setup
Spread Toolkit 4.1
Spread win32 binary running with the following configuration;

DebugFlags = { PRINT EXIT }
EventLogFile = testlog.out
EventTimeStamp = "[%a %d %b %Y %H:%M:%S]"
DangerousMonitor = false

Spread_Segment {
