Subject [jira] [Created] (GEODE-3906) Improve gfsh 'describe connection' and 'disconnect' command info
Date Wed, 25 Oct 2017 18:04:00 GMT
Dave Barnes created GEODE-3906:

             Summary: Improve gfsh 'describe connection'  and 'disconnect' command info
                 Key: GEODE-3906
             Project: Geode
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: gfsh
            Reporter: Dave Barnes

The gfsh 'describe connection' command currently shows host and JMX port:

gfsh>describe connection
Connection Endpoints
The 'disconnect' command gives the same info:

Disconnecting from:[1099]
Disconnected from :[1099]

While the information is accurate, it cannot be used to reconnect. Instead, gfsh wants the
locator port (default 10334), not the JMX port. As a user, I find this un-intuitive.

Consider this use case:
- I know I am going to disconnect and then reconnect (during an upgrade, for example).
- I issue the 'describe connection' command and note the result, so I can use it when I reconnect.
- I disconnect and exit gfsh.
- Later, I fire up gfsh and try to reconnect using 'connect --locator=localhost[1099]. The
connection fails, because gfsh wants the locator port (10334 by default, but could be something

This feature request is enhance the 'describe connection' and 'disconnect' commands to provide
the actual string that will work for a subsequent 'connect' command.  I know this is available
to gfsh, as it is provided when you issue a 'describe member' command.
