Cluster and Cache Configuration
To work with your VMware GemFire® applications, you use a combination of configuration files and application code.
Cluster members are programs that connect to a VMware GemFire cluster. You configure members to belong to a single cluster, and you can optionally configure them to be clients or servers to members in other clusters, and to communicate with other clusters.
VMware GemFire provides a default cluster configuration for out-of-the-box systems. To use non-default configurations and to fine-tune your member communication, you can use a mix of various options to customize your cluster configuration.
To populate your VMware GemFire® cache and fine-tune its storage and distribution behavior, you need to define cached data regions and provide custom configuration for the cache and regions.
For many VMware GemFire® discussions, you need to understand the difference between local and remote membership and caching.
