Bug Description

Similar to wsrep_sst_donor_rejects_queries, it would be useful to have another variable, setting which should reject queries for that node.

This can be useful if someone wants to manually run maintenance on the node like mysqldumps and don't want to tinker with load balancer etc.

Raghavendra, how about read-only? Doesn't that fit the bill?

But then if the node rejects queries then how is mysqldump going to run?

I was also thinking about a use-case where I can do maintenance on the node such that the maintenance work does not affect other nodes in the cluster. For example i could be doing a backup on the node using xtrabackup and that can consume a lot of IO and thats going to affect the whole cluster. There can be other cases, for example running mysqldump can also cause issues that can affect other nodes because if one node can't keep up its going to affect other nodes.

Ovais, so ideally there should be a command to desync the node from the cluster. However it is different from _rejecting_ queries, which is the topic of this ticket (which I think is Not A Good Idea).

Yes, thats right. While #2 would be interesting to have, the
issue here is from load-balancer's/applications's perspective.

Ok found it,

So how would this affect the node participation in the cluster?
