[Gluster-users] Exlcude subdirectories from AFR

well, I'm not sure (maybe one of the devs knows a better answer), but 
what I've done is (using your naming convention):

mkdir /var/wwwlogs
cd /var/www
for i in *; do mv $i/logs /var/wwwlogs/$i;ln -s /var/wwwlogs/$i $i/logs; done;

then mount gluster on /var/www

so people can view their logs (for a particular server) using the 
same path, and you can use the same path for your http config. but 
the web roots are AFRed

it's probably more efficient than using an exclude if one exists, but 
it may require some changes if you have scripts which create thes 
"domain#"s automatically.
