DistributedGroupand other instances of the group are notified, that notification does not relate to heartbeats in any way. Servers actually push events to clients to notify them of changes in the system. Clients only send heartbeats to the cluster to keep their session open and to maintain consistency between the client and server’s state. But pushing events to clients directly significantly reduces the latency and overhead of events and means clients actual react to changes in the state of a distributed object rather than first reading and then reacting to a state change.
