As a best practice, create a dedicated directory for each server
that stores GemFire XD log and status files.
Never move the working directory for a GemFire XD server or locator
while the member is running.
Never delete or modify GemFire XD persistence files, or move the files
from the member working directory.
interface use a working directory to read
input configuration files and to write log files, disk store files, and the
server status file. By default, a new GemFire XD server reads or creates files in
the directory from which you run the
command or execute the
method (the server working
directory). As a best practice, create a dedicated directory for each server
and specify the working directory for the server at startup using the
option at boot time. For example:
gfxd server start -dir=./server1
Input configuration properties can be defined in a properties file,
specified as command-line options to the
gfxd server command, or specified as Java system
properties using the
-property_name=property_value syntax. You
can also rely on default property values for many aspects of the configuration.
GemFire XD uses different conventions for defining properties in each location.
