[lustre-discuss] definition of a peer

FWIW, I now think an lnet peer is just "a node I've communicated with at some time".

Hi All,

What is the definition of an lnet peer (in Lustre 2.12 and in master, if the definition has changed over time)?

I had believed it was a node that could be communicated with directly from LNet's perspective, e.g. without requiring transit through a lustre router.   But that seems not to be true on a node I'm looking at.
