NAME

       garbd - arbitrator daemon for Galera cluster

SYNOPSIS

       garbd [options] [group address]

DESCRIPTION

       garbd  joins  Galera  cluster  as an additional node for the purpose of
       establishing quorum in case of network partitioning. It can  do  so  by
       serving:
              a) as an odd node to prevent split-brains;
              b) as a reference connection point outside a datacenter.
       Arbitrator  node  must  see  all  messages  that the other nodes of the
       cluster see, however it does not process  them  any  further  and  just
       discards  them.   As such it does not store any cluster state and can't
       be used to bootstrap the cluster, so it only can join existing cluster.
