    Description

      Currently we have two instances of the "use the local ip inside the same datacenter trick":

      • Ec2MultiRegionSnitch – which is obviously EC2 specific
      • YamlFileNetworkTopologySnitch – which is powerful but verbose

      There is no reason that GossipingPropertyFileSnitch could not (optionally) do the same. Attached is a patch that adds a preferLocal (default==false==current-behavior) property to GossipingPropertyFileSnitch and does the IEndpointStateChangeSubscriber reconnect dance. I based it on the other snitches but admit that they still seem fairly magical to me. This could be a new class that extends GossipingPropertyFileSnitch, but I could not think of a name that wasn't absurdly long.
