Description spandura 2012-10-18 02:45:53 EDT
Description of problem:
"gluster volume heal <volume_name> info heal-failed" command means the command output lists all files that were failed to self-heal. i.e.  self-heal daemon failed to self-heal the file. 

Even though the self-heal could have failed on a file in the current crawl, it doesn't mean the self-heal on that file failed for ever. The output is kind of misleading. 

Either the command itself can be changed or the output can be changed to list the files only for which the self-heal really failed because of some reason.

Documentation Link: https://access.redhat.com/knowledge/docs/en-US/Red_Hat_Storage/2.0/html/Administration_Guide/sect-User_Guide-Managing_Volumes-Self_heal.html

If we see the output of "info healed" and "info heal-failed" the file 
"/dir/file.44"  appears in both the commands.The time of the heal successful is same as time of heal failed. This is confusing in understanding whether the heal was successful or heal failed ?
Comment 2 spandura 2014-06-11 01:26:12 EDT
The command "gluster volume heal <volume_name> info heal-failed" is not supported anymore from the gluster build : 

"[root@rhs-client11 ~]# gluster --version
glusterfs built on Jun  9 2014 11:03:54"

Refer to bug : https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1104486

Hence this bug is not valid anymore. Moving the bug to CLOSED state.
