I have three nodes(as recommended, in different switches) forming a Galera Cluster. Is there any real requirement of 'Garbd'? I don't see much reasons for using this apart from avoiding split-brain or taking backups?
Another doubt regarding garbd is that suppose I have 3 nodes in the cluster, and adding a garbd node will make the cluster size of 4, which is an even-numbered quorum. Will this not cause a split-brain situation?
