Dear  Ravi,
Thanks for your kind explanation.
So, each server node will have a separate self-heal daemon(shd) up and
running , every time a child_up event occurs, and this will  be an index
And each daemon  will spawn  "priv->child_count " number of threads on each
server node . correct ?
1. When exactly a full healer spawns  threads?
2. When can GF_EVENT_TRANSLATOR_OP & GF_SHD_OP_HEAL_INDEX happen together
(so that index healer spawns thread) ?
    similarly when can GF_EVENT_TRANSLATOR_OP & GF_SHD_OP_HEAL_FULL  happen
? During replace-brick ?
Is it possible that index healer and full healer spawns threads together
(so that total number of  threads  is 2*priv->child_count)?

3. In /var/lib/glusterd/glustershd/glustershd-server.vol , why
 debug/io-stats  is chosen as the top xlator ?
