Remote Pause detection allows Coherence to detect and react to a cluster node becoming unresponsive (likely due to a long GC). Once a node is marked as paused, packets addressed to it will be sent at a lower rate until the node resumes responding. This remote GC detection is used to avoid flooding a node while it is incapable of responding.


The following table describes the elements you can define within the pause-detection element.

Element Required/Optional Description
<maximum-packets> Optional The maximum number of packets that will be resent to an unresponsive cluster node before assuming that the node is paused. Specifying a value of 0 will disable pause detection. Default is 16.
