The Pivotal GemFire product download does not include Java. Download and install a supported JRE or JDK on each system running GemFire. Pivotal recommends the installation of a full JDK (and not just a JRE) to obtain better performance with gfsh status and gfsh stop commands.

File System Type for Linux and Solaris Platforms

For optimal disk-store performance, Pivotal recommends the use of ext4 file systems when operating on Linux or Solaris platforms.
