Comment 2 Krutika Dhananjay 2015-03-18 11:49:40 UTC
Option name: cluster.consistent-metadata

Allowed Values: on|off

Default value: off

Enabling this option will let readdirp in AFR always serve attributes of all entries from their respective read children as long as they hold the good copy (the copy not needing heal) of the file/directory. Note however that it can cause applications to perceive reduction in performance where readdirps are involved.

Comment 3 Krutika Dhananjay 2015-03-18 11:55:01 UTC
Forgot to add the following:

Enabling this option should be followed by unmounting and mounting the volume at the clients to see its effect.

Comment 4 Divya 2015-03-23 08:17:14 UTC
Documented cluster.consistent-metadata option in Section 8.1. Configuring Volume Options. 

Link to the latest documentation: http://docbuilder.usersys.redhat.com/22522/#Configuring_Volume_Options
