Split-brain logging is confusing
Last modified: 2015-03-04 19:06:40 EST
Description of problem:
Currently, split-brain logs are not cleared after resolution. This may (and does) confuse users who manually heal/fix split-brain'ed files but still see them in this log. Its equally confusing that if you miss files in this process and heal again, the split-brain list grows.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create volume with replica 2
2. Cause split-brain on 1 file
3. Manually fix split-brain
4. Log entry still appears
It would be great if the split-brain list was cleared when starting another heal. Or if the files could be removed from the list once the split-brain state was fixed manually.
Could you explain what you mean by log. The one that is written to the file or the entry that appears in 'volume heal <volname> info split-brain'? Could you also let us know the version of gluster you are using.
This is referring to the 'volume heal <volname> info split-brain' output on any of the release-3.3 versions.
