Right now one of the only reasons we can't put our entire config for our
slaves in CVSup is that the config *requires* the ability to set a
server-id for each machine.
Seems like it would be pretty trivial to support a hostname based policy
for this. You could simply look at the IP/hostname and set the value
from this (though you might need a tracking table).
Policies could include:
- IP based server-id (IPs are 32bit)
- parse the hostname for an ID (db4.server.com would yield a server-id of 4)
- Adler32/SHA1 truncate the hashcode of the hostname
The first two seem sufficient. This wouldn't be the default of course
and would require an explicit config.
