      Description

      The description for membership-timeout on https://geode.apache.org/docs/guide/110/reference/topics/gemfire_properties.html is incorrect.

      It describes the member-timeout behavior of an old version of the product, before geode 1.0.

      Based on this description, a user might assume that an unresponsive member will be kicked out of the system only after 3*member-timeout milliseconds have elapsed. That may have been true before geode 1.0, but the geode has a different failure detection algorithm which will remove members after a minimum of 2*member-timeout milliseconds
