To get the full range of Pivotal GemFire capabilities for your cached data regions, follow GemFire's region naming guidelines.
The safest approach when naming your regions is to use only alphanumeric characters and the underscore character and to keep your region names short. This permits you the full range of GemFire region configurations and allow you to perform all available GemFire operations on the region.
- Do not use the separator slash character ‘ / ’.
- Do not begin region names with two underscore characters "__" as this is reserved for internal GemFire use.
- To run queries against your data, restrict your region names to alphanumeric characters and the underscore character.
