Description Csaba Henk 2018-09-10 12:38:51 UTC
Creating dumps of fuse traffic between kernel and glusterfs client (fuse userspace server) is a feature that is present for a long while as command line option for glusterfs. However, the official interface to mounting a glusterfs volume is the standard mount(8) command, so in order to officially support this feature it should be made available as a mount option.

Upstream effort has been tracked on the "kitchensink" bug, Bug 1193929.

Comment 9 Vinayak Papnoi 2018-10-09 09:10:00 UTC
Build version :

Mounting the volume with the "-odump-fuse=PATH" mount option is successful. The mount command generates a binary file with "PATH" as the file.

# mount -t glusterfs -odump-fuse=dumpfile /mnt/arbiter

The above command generated a binary file with the name "dumpfile".

Using "parsefuse" to view the fuse-dump in a human readable format it can be seen that the FUSE traffic b/w kernel and glusterfs-client is logged in the fuse-dump.

The glusterfs process spawned by the mount command has the "--dump-fuse" option as seen below:

root     27505     1  0 Oct04 ?        00:00:30 /usr/sbin/glusterfs --dump-fuse=dumpfile --volfile-server= --volfile-id=/arbiter /mnt/arbiter

Hence, moving the bug to VERIFIED.
