Description SATHEESARAN 2015-09-10 03:14:55 EDT
Description of problem:
There is no description about the volume set option - 'features.shard' - found in the 'gluster volume set help' output

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. check for the option - features.shard - in 'gluster volume set help'

Actual results:
No description was found about 'features.shard' in 'gluster volume set help'

Expected results:
Description about 'features.shard' should be available in 'gluster volume set help'

Additional info:
Consequence of this issue :

oVirt - which manages gluster nodes - uses 'gluster volume set help' to get all the options that are available to be set/unset on the volume and populates them in a dropdown list.

Now there is no way to enable sharding from oVirt
