Description of problem:

I had one of my beta users(Qualcomm) report that they were unable to figure out what a "brick" was in the documentation.  They were looking in:


I looked myself, but did not see a good definition anywhere...

Storage Concepts has been added in the Administration Guide at: http://documentation-stage.bne.redhat.com/docs/en-US/Red_Hat_Storage/2.0/html/Administration_Guide/chap-Administration_Guide-storage_concepts.html

Administration Guide will be released for GA. If you would like me to add anything specific in this section, please let me know.

Hi Divya,

I noticed the Volfile definition seems to be out of date:

    Volfile is a configuration file used by glusterfs process. Volfile will be usually located at /etc/glusterd/vols/VOLNAME."

I think it should read as:

    Volfile is a configuration file used by glusterfs process. Volfile will be usually located at /var/lib/glusterd/vols/VOLNAME. 

Please feel free to disregard if this has already been addressed or if I'm mistaken.

Hi Divya,

The brick defnition looks fine. But as per Justin's comment, volfile defnition is still not fixed. 
I am moving it to modified.
Can you please fix that and then move it ON_QA.
Comment 5 Divya 2012-07-17 14:11:04 EDT
I have updated all the instances of /etc/glusterd to /var/lib/glusterd. The updated Storage Concepts chapter is available at: http://documentation-stage.bne.redhat.com/docs/en-US/Red_Hat_Storage/2.0/html/Administration_Guide/chap-Administration_Guide-storage_concepts.html

The above mentioned url is not browseable, so I verified it from source and it looks fine.
