I am trying to implement a better 'master selection' scheme in Linux dm-mirror/LVM2 code. I read that DRBD used to have generation number scheme instead of the current UUID scheme. I read that the old 'generation number' scheme doesn't work for more than 2 nodes. Can some please explain how/why? Would a time stamped generation number help for more than 2 nodes? I understand that a generation number scheme would NOT work for quick resynchronization for more than 2 nodes, but would that help if we were to do full-resynchronization? Thank you for your time. --Malahal.
