|Topologies and Communication / Peer-to-Peer Configuration|
By default, Pivotal GemFire uses multicast for peer discovery. You can change the configuration to separate distributed systems and provide greater flexibility in member discovery.
Before you begin, you should have a basic understanding of member discovery. You should also have already determined the address and port settings for member discovery. See Topology and Communication General Concepts.
locators= mcast-address=<mcast address> mcast-port=<mcast port>
locators=<locator1-address>[<port1>],<locator2-address>[<port2>]By default, locators provide peer discovery in the system in which they run, so no special settings are required to enable it when you start them. See Pivotal GemFire Locator Process.
