Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 801046
Confusing example of distributed striped volume
Last modified: 2015-05-13 11:47:01 EDT
In the admin guide (section 5.4) at http://download.gluster.com/pub/gluster/glusterfs/3.2/Documentation/AG/html/sect-Administration_Guide--Setting_Volumes-Distributed_Striped.html
The first example for a "distributed striped volume" is this:
# gluster volume create test-volume stripe 4 transport tcp server1:/exp1 server2:/exp2 server3:/exp3 server4:/exp4
However since there are 4 bricks and a stripe width of 4, this is really just a simple "striped volume" as described previously in section 5.3.
Suggest you drop this example and leave just the second example.
The updated Red Hat Storage 2.0 User Guide is published
The doc's have been updated as follows:
# gluster volume create test-volume stripe 4 transport tcp server1:/exp1 server2:/exp2 server3:/exp3 server4:/exp4 server5:/exp5 server6:/exp6 server7:/exp7 server8:/exp8
Creation of test-volume has been successful
Please start the volume to access data.
