Is file metadata stored in the gateway or in Swift?

Chris Nelson -

 No, we attach the metadata to the file and save that as an object.

The file metadata is stored in the object’s metadata (if a file is placed in Swift by the gateway) and is also stored on a database residing on the gateway. This database is used to avoid constantly retrieving the information from the cluster and is considered authoritative. However, that database can be flushed and rebuilt from information stored in the cluster.
