thanks for your reply. I tried killing the glusterfsd process and I
confirm that the client does not see any pause, indeed.
I was thinking that during the shutdown procedure systemd would kill the
processes by itself; which it *does*, but only if the glusterfsd.service
By default, the systemd service installed on CentOS 7 + Gluster 6.0 SIG
does not start glusterfsd.service and so, in the shutdown phase, it does
not stop it.
Thanks very much for your information.
