Mogilefsd now supports using lighttpd (or any other DAV server presumably)
as your mogstored storage nodes.
Docs are checked into subversion:
Additionally, performance enhancements were made in mogilefsd to support
this use case:
-- caching that the special 'side channel' socket to mogstored isn't
available. it's primarily used for doing size requests to storage
node files, but it falls back to a HEAD request over HTTP if not
-- caching the socket that HEAD requests go on, doing Keep-Alive.
So now the HEAD requests just about as fast as the side channel stuff.
The only problem with lighttpd at this point is nothing is writing out the
per-device usage files, so mogilefsd can't weight new files based on
device capacity/usage. That'll be fixed soon enough, with either a
separate tool or a special mode to mogstored to write these out without
running in webserver mode (and not requiring Perlbal/Danga::Socket
libraries to be installed)
