Clustered cache recovery after network failure

Dmitry Udalov Newbie

Could you please direct me to the docs that describe best practices for re-joining a cluster which may happen after network failures? I see a good discussion  https://community.jboss.org/message/537786, but it's two years old. Any updates? What seems to be best practice for the such cases?

 

1. Losing a node. I guess when a cluster breaks apart then each node should proceed on its own using cached objects in their current state. But can we be sure that cache is always consistent across the nodes?

2. Re-joining the cluster. Should all nodes drop the existing cache and start from the scratch?

 

Thanks,

Dmitry
