Thanks for making the 'Keep Offline Slaves Disconnected Retention Strategy Plugin' available through plugin manager. I have installed the plugin, restarted and set the Availability for nodes I have taken offline to:
Keep this slave online as much as possible, but don't reconnect if temporarily marked offline by the user
I no longer see messages in the log of type:
Attempting to reconnect xxxx
But I do still messages of type:
Making xxxx offline because it’s not responding
Is that what you would expect?
