[Gluster-users] Stripe mode question

The actual total storage used across all the children of stripe will be the
same as file size. Hence there is no extra storage consumed, though ls -lh
<file> on each backend reports size approximately equal to file size (which
will make total storage to be equal to n * file-size, n being number of
children of stripe).

sorry for the confusion.
