size(): Returns the estimated size of the distributed cache.
destroy(): Destroys the cache and removes the data from memory. This is different from the method

com.hazelcast.cache.CacheStatisticsinstance providing the same statistics data as the JMX beans. This method is not available yet on Hazelcast clients--the exception
java.lang.UnsupportedOperationExceptionis thrown when you use this method on a Hazelcast client.
