Morten, et. al.,
I have tried to learn a lot about CTDB over the years, and have managed to
forget most of it (this is why I typically write stuff down...helps me
I spent a bit of time last week talking with active CTDB developers and I've
started to rebuild my understanding of the inner workings of CTDB.
Based on what you have above, I have a couple of questions for you:
- When you say you made a Gluster volume exclusively for CTDB, you mean
the recovery file. Is that correct?
- What else (CTDB-related) are you storing in the Gluster volume you
created for CTDB?
I ask, because my understanding is that the TDB files that CTDB manages are
intended to be local only, and not shared. If your configuration is
otherwise, I'd be interested in knowing.
