Last updated on NOVEMBER 03, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Coherence - Version: 3.3.0 to 3.5.2 - Release: to AS10g
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

This document explains how the near caches can preserve data on clients despite all cache servers may have been shut down. This is the data from orphaned partitions.

Following the steps below this behavior can be oberved:
  1. Start a storage enabled node
  2. Start a cache client (let's call it "client 1")
  3. Do a put on the NearCache
  4. Do a get of the recently put entry key --> it is returned OK
  5. Shutdown the storage enabled node (if you try to do a put after the storage enabled node shutdown, then you will get a "storage is not configured" error)
  6. Do a get of the recently put entry key --> it is returned OK again (despite there are no storage enabled nodes running on the cluster)
  7. Startup a storage enabled node again
  8. Do a get of the recently put entry key --> it is returned OK again
