But the things seems going weird for the following volume:

Volume Name: test
Number of Bricks: 2 x (2 + 1) = 6 <--- 2 subvolumes (2 data + 1 arbiter)
Transport-type: tcp
Brick1: [local-ip]:/tmp/ram/0 <--- Data
Brick2: [local-ip]:/tmp/ram/1 <--- Data
Brick3: [local-ip]:/tmp/ram/2 <--- Arbiter
Brick4: [local-ip]:/tmp/ram/3 <--- Data
Brick5: [local-ip]:/tmp/ram/4 <--- Data
Brick6: [local-ip]:/tmp/ram/5 <--- Arbiter

This is a 'replica 3 arbiter 1' volume. In such case /tmp/ram/3 and /tmp/ram4 are part of the same subvolume and contain data, while /tmp/ram/5 is just an arbiter (no data at all). Loosing 2 bricks from the same subvolume is leading to data loss.

Best Regards,
