Events and Event Handling

Geode provides versatile and reliable event distribution and handling for your cached data and system member events.

  • How Events Work

    Members in your Geode distributed system receive cache updates from other members through cache events. The other members can be peers to the member, clients or servers or other distributed systems.

  • Implementing Geode Event Handlers

    You can specify event handlers for region and region entry operations and for administrative events.

  • Configuring Peer-to-Peer Event Messaging

    You can receive events from distributed system peers for any region that is not a local region. Local regions receive only local cache events.

  • Configuring Client/Server Event Messaging

    You can receive events from your servers for server-side cache events and query result changes.

  • Configuring Multi-Site (WAN) Event Queues

    In a multi-site (WAN) installation, Geode uses gateway sender queues to distribute events for regions that are configured with a gateway sender. AsyncEventListeners also use an asynchronous event queue to distribute events for configured regions. This section describes additional options for configuring the event queues that are used by gateway senders or AsyncEventListener implementations.
