07:29 ^andrea^ Hi
07:29 glusterbot ^andrea^: Despite the fact that friendly greetings are nice, please ask your question. Carefully identify your problem in such a way that when a volunteer has a few minutes, they can offer you a potential solution. These are volunteers, so be patient. Answers may come in a few minutes, or may take hours. If you're still in the channel, someone will eventually offer a
07:30 ^andrea^ can a glusterfs cluster be used as a replacement for an NFS single point of failure?
07:31 ^andrea^ I look after 50+ products/sites, and each of them uses a single VM offering NFS
07:32 ^andrea^ the problem is that such VM, cannot be rebooted ("ever"), and therefore upgraded...
07:33 ^andrea^ so the idea I'm thinking, is to replace all the NFS VMs with a single glusterfs cluster...
07:33 ^andrea^ does that sound reasonable?

08:29 _KaszpiR_ ^andrea^ yes, nfs-ganesha
08:30 _KaszpiR_ ^andrea^ but if you have linu clients then it is suggested to use native gluster client
08:31 _KaszpiR_ if you still need to use nfs and avoid glusterfs there are also other solutions like drbd (for HA setups) and with virtual-ip assignements
08:32 ^andrea^ Hi _KaszpiR_, thanks
08:32 _KaszpiR_ the idea of gluster is not to have multiple points of nfs access but distrubuted storage
08:33 ^andrea^ I found the documentation for nfs-ganesha not very clear (I might have not found the best docs)
08:33 ^andrea^ what's the relationship between nfs-ganesha and glusterfs? are they not two different things?
08:34 _KaszpiR_ yp
08:35 _KaszpiR_ yep
08:35 _KaszpiR_ glusterfs is a distributed storage with its own native client to access that storage
08:35 _KaszpiR_ nfs-ganesha is a nfs server in user space, which allows using nfs protocol to access different storage backends
08:36 _KaszpiR_ you can mix both, so nfs-ganesha allows accessinb glusterfs storage via nfs client
08:37 _KaszpiR_ https://www.linux.com/news/run-your-nfs-server-user-address-space-nfs-ganesha
08:38 _KaszpiR_ ^andrea^ what operating systems do you need to support to access data va nfs?
08:39 ^andrea^ centos 7 only..
08:39 _KaszpiR_ then I suggest replacing nfs with gluster-agent
08:40 _KaszpiR_ I mean from client side, centos 7  only?
08:41 ^andrea^ both clients and servers are going to be centos 7
08:41 _KaszpiR_ ah, great
08:42 ^andrea^ that article is from 2008 (that's why I say NFS-ganesha doesn't have much/good information around)
08:43 _KaszpiR_ yeah its old but the general idea did not change than much, and original docs are lacking in that matter
08:50 ^andrea^ so NFS-ganesha would be the front-end of whatever HA storage I want to use (eg glusterfs)
08:51 ^andrea^ could I not use a standard NFS connection on the clients then?
08:51 ^andrea^ sorry, I'm a bit confused on how this all play together..
08:52 ^andrea^ and the general lack of docs around NFS-ganesha makes me thing it's not a very common approach...

09:04 _KaszpiR_ that's why I suggest using standard gluster agents, and ganesha if you are really forced/limited to nfs only
