[Gluster-users] Quick question regarding xfs_repair

I have recently had an issue with a RAID volume where a few bad logical
sectors were generated and propagated into the XFS filesystem above it. The
XFS file system is 1 of 4 volumes that are residing beneath a Gluster 3.0
distributed cluster config:


volume distribute

    type cluster/distribute




My question has two parts.


1.       If I perform an xfs_repair will gluster become out of sync with the
filesystem in lieu of repairs?

2.       Can I trust the backups I performed after these issues cropped up
as a result of the distribution of files across the nodes? Ie, a file is
only ¾ complete or would gluster complain and make that file unavailable as
it should?
