Gossiping on client side when using DNS + load balancer

Is there any point of configuring the gossip port when my cluster is behind a load balancer and is accessed through a DNS? It feels redundant. I’d like to understand why the client needs this, I feel like I’m missing something.

Thanks :slight_smile:

When behind DNS + a load balancer there is not much need for it as many of the client options become meaningless like prefer master. Can you open a ticket to allow it to be disabled?
