Description of problem:
volume info from heketi presents data to admin which is not clear.
Eg: whether a volume is only replica(1x3) or distributed replica(nx3), it displays as distribute+replica=3
In below case a 8x3 volume was created, yet heketi displays details as below

Distributed+Replica: 3 ====>it should show as 8x3 (even change "Distributed+Replica" string to "DistributedxReplica")
No where we get the details of whether the volume is distributed replicate or not.
While it may not be very useful in most of the cases(hence the severity is low), atleast the admin gets a fair idea on the actual configuration
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
John and I discussed this. We do have the durability type in Volumeinfo API, we also have the brick list. Using both we can show a better description of volume as requested.
Agreed fix is available as PR upstream and will be merged soon.
Trivial to verify.
Proposing for 3.11.2
Will it get into 3.11.4?
I think so, yes. It's part of heketi v9 which we're rebasing to in OCS 3.11.4.
