Subject Re: Enabling swap space and Ignite Persistence
Date Fri, 02 Mar 2018 09:28:16 GMT

Swap is legacy lightweight version of Ignite Native Persistence. In swap 
mode, we fully rely on OS in storing offheap memory into memory-mapped 
file. We don't provide durability guarantees in this mode. From my point 
of view, after 2.1 release there's no reason to prefer swap mode over 
Ignite Native Persistence.
Igniters, please correct me if there are still any actual cases.

Right now we indeed can configure both Ignite Native Persistence and 
swapping, but this makes even less sense. Node will just perform extra 
job by persisting data twice.
