Description Joe Julian 2014-07-24 06:53:52 UTC
Description of problem:

There's no way to know if a client failed to retrieve its new vol file after a graph change. If there was a sha1sum some other consistent checksum, we could easily check all our client logs to ensure the change was completed.

you can easily check the checksum in client log. but what if you dont have permission in storage node to see actual checksum of volfile.


Comment 2 Joe Julian 2014-12-22 16:24:05 UTC
Since any user that can mount a volume will have access to that volume's log file, that should be sufficient. Typically this will only be used for diagnostics or monitoring with root access anyway.

Perhaps a future enhancement could add that to "volume status client"  but this should be sufficient for now.

Closing for the time being due to lack of priority and resources to implement.
