Want to try Hazelcast 5.0?

We’ve combined the in-memory storage of IMDG with the stream processing power of Jet to bring you an all new Hazelcast platform.

Common Exception Types

You may see the following exceptions in any Hazelcast operation when the described situations occur:

  • HazelcastInstanceNotActiveException: Thrown when HazelcastInstance is not active (already shutdown or being shutdown) during an invocation.

  • HazelcastOverloadException: Thrown when the system cannot handle any more load due to an overload. This exception is thrown when back pressure is enabled.

  • DistributedObjectDestroyedException: Thrown when a distributed data structure is destroyed using the destroy() method while there is a blocking operation on it, e.g., waiting a response for the Lock.lock() method.

  • MemberLeftException: Thrown when a member leaves during an invocation or execution.

Hazelcast also throws the following exceptions in the cases of overall system problems such as networking issues and long pauses:

  • PartitionMigratingException: Thrown when an operation is executed on a partition, but that partition is currently being moved.

  • TargetNotMemberException: Thrown when an operation is sent to a machine that is not a member of the cluster.

  • CallerNotMemberException: Thrown when an operation was sent by a machine which is not a member in the cluster when the operation is executed.

  • WrongTargetException: Thrown when an operation is executed on the wrong machine, usually because the partition that operation belongs to has been moved to some other member.
