Is there any way to specifically read from the nearest replica at its current closed timestamp? Please correct me if I’m wrong, but it seems that if I do a follower read it will try to read at exactly at -x seconds. However, if the replica I’m talking to has a closed timestamp newer than that, it seems preferable to read there instead and wouldn’t mess up any consistency guarantees, right?
In the same vein, if I do a follower read at -4.8s with the intention of not making a trip to the leaseholder, what if my nearest replica has a closed timestamp older than that? Perhaps it’s not even possible for it to lag that much?
