VMware GemFire® Reference
Reference documents VMware GemFire® properties, region attributes, the
cache.xml file, cache memory requirements, and statistics.
You use the
gemfire.propertiessettings to join a cluster and configure cluster member behavior. Cluster members include applications, the cache server, the locator, and other VMware GemFire processes.
Use the cache.xml file to set up general cache facilities and behavior and to create and initialize cached data regions. These sections document cache.xml requirements; provide hierarchical diagrams of
<client-cache>elements; and describe the function of each element.
This topic describes the various region shortcuts you can use to configure VMware GemFire regions.
Your application needs to catch certain classes to handle all the exceptions and system failures thrown by VMware GemFire®.
VMware GemFire solutions architects need to estimate resource requirements for meeting application performance, scalability and availability goals.
This section describes the primary statistics gathered by VMware GemFire when statistics are enabled.
