bash# gluster volume create test-vol stripe 2 replica 3 [6BRICKS] ..
PATCH: http://patches.gluster.com/patch/7578 in master (gluster volume create: option for stripe + replicate volume)
PATCH: http://patches.gluster.com/patch/7528 in master (gluster volume info: fix the output of 'stripe-replicated' volumes)
any of the order, like
gluster volume create <VOL> replica 3 stripe 4 [12BRICKS]
gluster volume create <VOL> stripe 4 replica 3 [12BRICKS]
would create same type of volume (RAID01 type, ie, replicate is subvolume of stripe, which can be subvolume of distribute).
Striped replicate volumes can be created now with glusterfs-3.3 releases. Checked with glusterfs-3.3.0qa9.
gluster volume create <volname> stripe <cnt> replica <cmt> "bricks" will create striped replicate volume. Even if the stripe and replica are swapped, then also striped replicate volume with appropriate counts are created.
