Re: [Linux-cluster] Simple data replication in a cluster



Thanks.  A good idea.  I've considered using csync2 (and similar things).  I use unison for syncing in my current clusters.  But that is done to simplify installation/configuration by the user.  My scripts push the static application data around the cluster when the user is installing.

I was facing a similar issue, but instead of going for full cluster stack (i 
didnt need it for the failover), I went for csync2

if you absolutely need to have the changes propagated instantly, you need to 
hook csync2 to inotify (google should give you options), or if you dont expect 
any changes right before crashes, running with cron every few minutes might 
suit your needs
