I know that by hard-mounting on a local filesystem the connection reestablishment is continuously attempted with connection retries.
Does this affect the performance on the cluster side ? Problems that come to mind are idle threads or memory leakage.
Furthermore, is file consistency affected ? I am thinking about cases when remote read/writes on the mounted files might lose updates happening from clients that are much closer to cluster (like clients connected to cluster via LAN).
Finally, I think a more general question on this topic is this : In the CAP theorem space, where does MapR-FS fall into ?
