So, using an async client will get you 1/2 of the job done. The way to limit the blocking is by limiting that blocking, e.g. splitting keys and sending gets to nodes that own it would mean the gets get resolved locally, similar thing with puts but as Bela/Pedro found out, there could be some blocking still.

Err, not sure what use case you are talking about here but Hot Rod does not have transactions.

More than Netty, the Hot Rod server implementation could take a N-key putAll and parallize it if needed.

Sure, I agree that there’s benefit of course, but as you rightly pointed out, these puts either need to be putAsyncs and wait for all replies and then send the response to the client, or paralellize sync put calls manually.
