Description Joe Julian 2011-06-20 20:29:05 EDT
The pid files are kind-of immobile. The right place for them under RedHat based distributions would be under /var/run but even if I specify '-p /var/run/glusterfs/glusterd.pid' when starting glusterd, that has no effect on the locations of the nfs, glusterfsd, glusterfs or gsync pid files.

I feel the better structure is to have them based on a pid-directory structure rather than volume/service based. For instance:
{pid-root}/nfs.pid (or {pid-root}/nfs/nfs.pid)

The command-line option I would envision to go along with that would then be '--pid-root'.

priority will be re-addressed after 3.3.0 GA

I have run into a related problem.  The gluster-swift packages by kkeithley create a 'swift.pid' file in a subdirectory of /var/lib/glusterd/vols/$volname.  When you issue "gluster volume delete $volname" it is unable to delete the volume directory because of this file.  I have filed bug 861497 for the general problem with the volume directory not getting fully removed on volume deletion.

General comment: It seems like a very bad idea for one package (gluster-swift) to put its pid file in a directory that is created and managed at runtime by another package (gluster).
Comment 3 Kaleb KEITHLEY 2015-10-22 11:46:38 EDT
because of the large number of bugs filed against mainline version\ is ambiguous and about to be removed as a choice.

If you believe this is still a bug, please change the status back to NEW and choose the appropriate, applicable version for it.
