That was the > piece that I knew needed to be done for sure. I'd also say that the client supports trunking discovery--in a way, that's the source of the problem here. The client is probing and discovering that the two IP addresses point to the same server, and using that information to share the same connection. That's trunking discovery, to my understanding. > When you say it fully support trunking do you mean it when each nfsd > node runs in its own container, right? No, I mean that we support a client using multiple sessions (clientid trunking), or multiple connections per session (session trunking). > Otherwise, I thought more code would be needed to support the case > presented here. nfsd would need to have a notion of running something > like a cluster node on a particular interface and distinguish between > requests coming from different interface and act accordingly? I guess it'd be possible to do something like that. For now we don't have any plans outside of the namespace/container work. I wouldn't call that trunking support. But I think we agree on what's actually supported and not supported here, we just disagree about the meanings of words like "trunking support". > Client can and will do trunking in case of pNFS to the data servers if > the server presents multiple IPs.
