[Gluster-users] cluster/afr not mirroring 100%?

Hi there

I've just read about Glusterfs and was impressed enough to give it a go
- but have hit a hurdle already.

I've installed glusterfs-1.3.12 on a FC9 and CentOS5 server, and am
using it to mount bricks on each via cluster/afr.

Once the clients were mounted, I started copying a directory into the
mount point, and sure enough, it started showing up under /home/export
on both servers (as expected). However, I then Ctrl-C'ed the "cp"
command I was running and I did a "du /home/export" on both servers -
and they don't match! Same fs (ext3) on both. Obviously a lot of the
files are the same, but there are some files on one that aren't on the
other. How could that happen?

The following line showed up in /var/log/glusterfs/glusterfs.log on ONE
of the two servers when I did the Ctr-C

dentry maps

Any ideas? Thanks
