Event Details

ID: 2183
Source: MSMQ
Version: 6.0
Message: Machine MSMQ storage quota was exceeded or there is insufficent disk space. No more messages can be stored in user queues.

Get messages below the quota

The Message Queuing machine quota has been reached. The sending application should request negative acknowledgements (NACK) from the computer to which it is sending messages. If a NACK is returned to the sending application and indicates that the quota for the destination queue or computer has been reached, the sending application can either stop sending messages or offload the messages to another destination.

For more information about Message Queuing computer quotas, see article 899612 in the Microsoft Knowledge Base (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=107359).

Process existing messages in the queues to reduce the outstanding message count below the machine quota threshold. Confirm that messages are being processed at a higher rate than they are being queued.
