In a scenario where more then one system is running with the same AFD configuration, because of high availability reasons, distribution of data can be much faster if AFD would choose scheme 'file' if we are distributing the data to the local nodename (ie. to itself). For this reason it is possible to specify local interface names in the file $AFD_WORK_DIR/etc/local_interface.list. The syntax is one interface per line and a line starting with a # sign is treated as comment line. If the toggle button Use scheme file when hostname matches local nodename is set, and any of the local interface names matches the the current real hostname, AFD will use scheme 'file' to deliver the data.
If this file does not exist, it will just compare the hostname of the system with the current real hostname.
