glusterfsd: Round robin DNS should not be relied upon with
config service availability for clients. Backupvolfile server as it stands is slow and prone to errors with mount script and its combination with RRDNS. Instead in theory it should use all the available nodes in 'trusted pool' by default (Right now we don't have a mechanism in place for this) Nevertheless this patch provides a scenario where a list of volfile-server can be provided on command as shown below ----------------------------------------------------------------- $ glusterfs -s server1 .. -s serverN --volfile-id=<volname> \ <mount_point> ----------------------------------------------------------------- OR ----------------------------------------------------------------- $ mount -t glusterfs -obackup-volfile-servers=<server2>: \ <server3>:...:<serverN> <server1>:/<volname> <mount_point> ----------------------------------------------------------------- Here ':' is used as a separator for mount script parsing Now these will be remembered and recursively attempted for fetching vol-file until exhausted. This would ensure that the clients get 'volume' configs in a consistent manner avoiding the need to poll through RRDNS.
