[Gluster-users] Graceful gluster server retire/poweroff

Hi list,
I have a replica 3 test cluster and I have a question about how clients 
behave to an host shutdown.

If I suddenly switch off one of the gluster server, the connected 
clients see a ~42s stall in I/O: this is expected, as it is the default 
client timeout.

However, it is possible to *gracefully* shutdown a running gluster 
server, *without* impacting a running client? Ie: putting the affected 
server in a "maintenance mode" of sort.
