[GSS](6.4.z) jgroups port_range documentation (edit)
Last modified: 2017-12-04 16:52:24 EST
Section Number and Name:
17.5.2. Configure the JGroups Subsystem to Use TCP
Describe the issue:
port_range is initialport + port_range, as explained here
Suggestions for improvement:
Additionally, the description of the initial_hosts property in the EAP
documentation is incomplete/misleading:
"A comma-separated list of the hosts which are considered well-known,
and will be available to look up the initial membership."
The value of the initial_hosts property includes a host *and* port
using the syntax: host[port]. The port_range applies to each address
specified in initial_hosts. The end result is that the port_range
effectively multiplies the set of potential initial members.
if initial_hosts="host1,host2" and port_range="2", TCPPING
will try to contact the following addresses when the channel is
host1:1000, host1:1001, host1:1002, host2:2000, host2:2001, host2:2002
This looks good to me. Marking it verified.
The text for initial_hosts and port_range has been updated, and is available on the Customer Portal at the following link:
