State-Transfer issue during startup a new instance joining the cluster in RHDG

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • There are a huge number of caches configured and sometimes a startup from a new instance will fail and it get not ready, management, HTTP and HotRod ports are not listening.

  • Startup of a new instance will fail but all our caches are not waiting for initial-state-transfer or are configured with a proper timeout setting, what is the reason?
  • Startup will fail for state transfer after 60 seconds with a cache we don't use, so it is empty and should not cause issues with timeouts!

  • Startup will fail randomly with timeouts but if tried right after that it will start without any issue, what is the reason for this and how to avoid it?
