Additional info:
I can continue to write to the volume even though it says it is full via df.  But this is breaking our monitoring system because we have a volume that is 100% full.

Comment 1 James Hartsock 2014-07-25 21:13:27 UTC

I know you told me that you are seeing this when mouting from another node to

                       99G   99G     0 100% /data/replicated

I am guessing this was a gluster mount too, are the results the same if you use NFS to mount it?

Comment 2 Ryan Larson 2014-07-28 16:47:39 UTC
Yes, it shows the same data when mounted via nfs.

Comment 3 James Hartsock 2014-07-31 15:55:27 UTC

First,  Would it be possible to mount outside the /data mount as it seems this is possibly the trigger as it appears the size of /data is being report for /data/replicated.

# df
Filesystem                        Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/mapper/data_vg-data_lv        99G 188M   94G   1% /data
/dev/mapper/data_vg-replicated_lv 394G 105G  269G  29% /data/protected/replicated-DO-NOT-TOUCH
localhost:cluster-replicated       99G  99G     0 100% /data/replicated

Secondly, believe you mentioned you have another system with similar setup/versions that is not seeing the issue.  If you could share that information, I think that would be good data too.

Comment 4 James Hartsock 2014-08-12 21:12:39 UTC

While my names/paths are slightly different I think you will see they are similar enough for you to see similarities.  But anyway the only way I have been able to replicate this issue is if I create and start the gluster volume on /data/protected prior to mounting /data/protected (thus results on it being on /data really).

These on both nodes of my test systems
# mkdir /data #may need to rm -rf first if re-doing
# mkfs.xfs -f -i size=512 /dev/data/data
# mkfs.xfs -f -i size=512 /dev/data/replicated
# mount /dev/mapper/data-data /data

These on one node
# gluster volume create replicated replica 2 rhs1:/data/protected/replicated rhs2:/data/protected/replicated
# gluster volume start replicated
<make sure everything is started/status is good>

These  on one node
# mkdir /data/replicated
# mount localhost:/replicated /data/replicated
<mount should work, with size of /data volume really>
# date >> /data/replicated/james
# date >> /data/replicated/james2
# chmod 666 /data/replicated/*
# umount /data/replicated

This on both nodes
# mount /dev/mapper/data-replicated /data/protected/replicated

This on one node
# mount localhost:/replicated /data/replicated
# df
Filesystem           1K-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on
                       5684576   2011100   3384708  38% /
tmpfs                   961364         0    961364   0% /dev/shm
/dev/vda1               495844     37096    433148   8% /boot
                      10475520     33040  10442480   1% /data
                      52403200     32944  52370256   1% /data/protected/replicated
                      10475520     33024  10442496   1% /data/replicated

While this may not be exactly how it happened, is it possible that a lvol, filesystem, or mount got done in an odd order when you created this one?

I have tried a few other things to see if I can replicate this issue on RHEL with the same glusterfs RPMs and only doing something in odd order like above have I been able to accomplish this.

Also after our last call I think you mentioned you might be able to test with /dev/mapper/data_vg-replicated_lv mounted outside of /data.  Were you able to get that done?

Comment 5 James Hartsock 2014-10-23 16:05:03 UTC
My understanding that after the system was rebuilt this issue is no longer present.  I will close this BZ with INSUFFICIENT_DATA for now.  We can re-open if the issue is seen again (and hopefully can be replicated).
