Hello Kunal,

  I began to study gluster and use it to try some concepts by the middle of
2012 and for me the most useful sources of information were/are:

  To begin with:
  - The four posts "Translator 101" from Jeff Darcy at
  - The translator api description at

  - The gluster-devel list history at
  - About the gluster protocol comm, some reverse engineering Niels
presented at the last Gluster workshop at Linuxcon


  And some online doxygen documentation I found through the web from
version 3.2.7 (you can always generate it yourself, but a direct like that
sometimes is useful too).
