[Gluster-users] Glusterfs gives up with endpoint not connected

So what I did to make it more secure without my vols being "endpoint not
connected" is to run rsync not on my mounted vols but directly on my
glusterfs/export and the underlying directories. This seems to be more
stable. The only thing I
must have a look at, that none of my scripts write to glusterfs/export .
In any case there is an urgent need to get this feature "snapshot".

I see this too from time to time. I have to kill all processes that have an
open filedescriptor on the mountpoint, then umount and mount again.

Not yet, it's on the feature roadmap :
