  • Setting consistent-hash-factory will cause server start failure with RHDG 7.3
  • It is possible to set the consistent-hash-factory in embedded mode but for server mode it will fail, what is the reason?
  • Why I can set consistent-hash-factory and when should it be used?
  • What is the ConsistentHash used for?
  • There is an uneven memory usage after restarting one node, what is the reason?
  • A node consume only half of the memory after restart and other nodes consume more, is this critical and nodes can be overused?
