Determine if system metadata should or should not be stored on Member Nodes
As a developer I need to know whether system metadata will be stored on Member Nodes and replicated along with other information, or if the system metadata will be created by the (client + member node) and only stored on the coordinating nodes.
- Evaluate the system metadata life cycle
- Evaluate the storage requirements for system metadata on MNs
- Determine functionality that will be missed if sysmeta only on CNs
- Determine additional method / http calls necessary if sysmeta not stored on MNs
