This topic links to documentation that explains how to configure and run VMware GemFire clusters.

Use the gfsh command-line utility to configure your VMware GemFire cluster. The cluster configuration service persists the cluster configurations and distributes the configurations to members of the cluster. There are also several additional ways to configure a cluster.

Use gfsh to configure regions, disk stores, members, and other VMware GemFire objects. You can also use gfsh to start and stop locators, servers, and VMware GemFire monitoring tools. As you execute these commands, the cluster configuration service persists the configuration. When new members join the cluster, the service distributes the configuration to the new members.

gfsh is the recommended means of configuring and managing your VMware GemFire cluster, however you can still configure many aspects of a cluster using the older methods of the cache.xml and files. See cache.xml and the Reference for configuration parameters. You can also configure some aspects of a cluster using a Java API. See Managing VMware GemFire.
