Problems with volume after brick addition and rebalance
Last modified: 2012-08-08 11:12:10 EDT
I have a v3.3 4 brick replica 2 volume and decided to expand it so I added another 4 bricks to it. All went fine and I have not seen any issues.
After that I decided it'd be best to issue a rebalance (I would guess this is standard procedure after brick addition, no?) and so I did, the command reported that it has started successfully.
The problem is that right after issuing the rebalance I can no longer perform certain operations on this volume, specifically `ls` on directories (ls /blah/file works, strangely enough) and `rm`.
Here's a paste of the rebalance log: http://fpaste.org/vBBb/
2 hours on and the status of the rebalance operation is still in progress with 0 files:
The volume contains a mixture of big (50GB) and small files (some HTMLs).
All nodes are Centos 6.3 64bit, selinux and iptables turned off. Glusterfs was installed from the RPMs provided at gluster.org (having tried and hit the exact same problem previously with Kkeith's EPEL rpms).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gluster 3.3 on centos 6.3 64bit
always so far
Steps to Reproduce:
1. create volume
2. add new bricks to the volume
3. run a rebalance
size of the mounted volume reflects the new added bricks, but `ls` and `rm` on directories do not work.
full functional expanded volume
selinux and firewall turned off, the nodes are connected via gigE in a private switch
Reformatting my bricks with XFS fixed the issue! So the culprit was ext4 ...
