Description Joe Julian 2015-08-20 23:09:21 EDT
On the rare occasion something is wrong, like the client will not reconnect to a brick, I've been able to work around it by changing a volume setting that affects the client. This causes the client to reload the vol file and return to sanity.

A kill -HUP does not do this as the client recognizes that the vol file hasn't changed and refuses to reload.

Adding the ability to force a reload may be beneficial perhaps a SIGUSR2?

I wouldn't rely on the glusterd connection and, in fact, the signal should force that reconnection as well.
