Logical representation of the node's current local state.
Cluster Nodes record the current operations they undertake as their local states. Such operations can indicate when the node is initialized, joining the cluster, waiting a State Snapshot Transfer (SST), or providing an SST to another node.
This status variable provides the logical representation of the node's current local state. To retrieve the numeric representation of the local state, see the wsrep_local_state status variable.
The node successfully started, but has not yet established network connectivity with the Primary Component.
The node has established a connection with the cluster and synchronized its local databases with those of the cluster.
The node is attempting to join the cluster.
The node has successfully joined the cluster.
The node is waiting on a State Snapshot Transfer (SST) to bring its local databases up to date with the cluster.
The node has blocked itself while it sends a State Snapshot Transfer (SST) to bring a new node up to date with the cluster.
