Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 879536
Add use-rsync-xattrs to geo-replication
Last modified: 2013-03-19 03:51:15 EDT
Description of problem:
Currently geo-replication is slow for directories with a large amount of small files due to the sync of the xtime for all files. This option is only available in the master branch. Please integrate the feature in the 3.3.2 version of GlusterFS.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 3.3.0
Create a directory with thousands (>50.000) of small files (e.g. images) and setup geo-replication.
Geo-replication checks every file in the directory which is very slow for directories with a large amount of files.
Geo-replication should only consider those files which have actually changed to speed up the process.
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=841062 implements this for mainline.
We are not so eager for the backport now so mark WONTFIX.
