Ashish worked on this logging patch and I believe they are merged now. So this shouldn't happen.
The following message should have their log levels changed to DEBUG:
In dht_fix_layout_of_directory ():
gf_msg (this->name, GF_LOG_INFO, 0,
"subvolume %d (%s): %u chunks", i,
This message alone took up about 2GB of a 2.9GB rebalance log file.
Moving this to POST as the patch has been posted upstream:
Upstream mainline : http://review.gluster.org/15343
Upstream 3.8 : http://review.gluster.org/15413
And the fix is available in rhgs-3.2.0 as part of rebase to GlusterFS 3.8.4.
Verified this bug with glusterfs version: 3.8.4-2.el7rhgs.x86_64.
After the fix, DHT layout logs those are being generated during mkdir creation are no longer seen with default log level. Layout logs are moved to DEBUG level and user will be able to see those logs only if the log level is set to DEBUG.
Hence, moving this bug to verified.
