We have encountered this problem many times, there is no precheck in SFG that will check for loops before deploying the routing channel.
Due to this problem, we have ran into huge recursive file routing loops which kept reprocessing the same file, hogging the server resources ultimately to the stage of crashing it. The same also contributed to manifest database issues of fragmentation and slow performance.
Such a trivial check is present in every enterprise system and we are surprised by absence of same in IBM SFG.
What is your industry?
How will this idea be used?
This will prevent loops and improve DB performance thereby avoiding useless recursions.
