Hazelcast / Pega and (Too many open files error) - Few clarifications ...

Config : Pega 7.1.7 , RHEL , WAS 7.x , ORACLE

Issue - Our QA environment reporting Too Many open files ( Auto restart of JVM's)

General recommendations found : Increase ULIMIT value for open files to 65000

Observation : Even after ulimit increase we noticed that open files was increasing (lsof command) .

When checked it was found that hazelcast was having 19 members in the cluster but QA environment had only 8 members altogether.

Other members were from an environment we created long time back with a DB copy of our QA environment. Status nodes table had old dates but had entries. Even after removing the entry from Status node we noticed it was still 19 members.

Action taken : We cleared status nodes table on both environments and DB cache we were able to service restore .

Question :

1) Where is Pega storing the hazelcast cluster information ?

2) How hazelcast identifies the members for its cluster during startup - is there a pega linkage here or it is purely hazelcast framework ?

3) In case of clearing the cluster members for whatever reason - Any other steps we can follow instead of clearing DB Cache tables/ Status nodes ?

4) Is hazelcast continued feature in all latest versions of Pega ?

Thank you,
