Description Niels de Vos 2016-08-06 11:02:14 UTC
Stripe functionality has been implemented by sharding. The stripe xlator is barely maintained anymore and should be deprecated.

The plan is to remove the stripe xlator in two steps:

1. remove the command line option to prevent users from creating new volumes that
   use the stripe xlator

2. after a release that includes point 1, remove the stripe xlator from the

This bug deals with step 1, step 2 is to be done after 3.9.0 has been released (see related bug in the blocks field)

Vijay, you wanted to send a patch for the CLI that warns users when they try to create a striped volume. Did you find time to do that yet?

It should probably also warn once in some of the logs, maybe in the init() routine of the stripe xlator itself.

Since we are removing stripe from the build, is there a necessity to act on this bug? Should we close this as WONTFIX?

Comment 4 Amar Tumballi 2018-10-31 03:09:33 UTC
Lets mark it as WONTFIX. The patch to remove stripe is merged upstream
