I have been looking into the NFS export of the FUSE mount thing. (mount
-t nfs localhost:/...)
In my search for a userspace NFS daemon, I found nfs-ganesha.
Has anyone tried linking the FUSE client to the FSAL_FUSELIKE module?
It is under active development by Panasas and IBM. But their FUSE
module isn't being maintained. (v1.5.1 currently won't compile)
The reason I am looking at this specifically, other than running the
GlusterFS server on all my clients, is that I am creating a private IaaS
and I need to dynamically add/remove clients.
I can write a REST API to have clients auto register to the cluster.
Then have a cron job that runs through disconnected peers that are not
serving bricks and remove them. But if I can use a normal client and
nfs-ganesha, it would be a lot simpler and a lot less state maintenance.
