[Gluster-users] GlusterFS and Visual Effects

I have created a file via Houdini (http://www.sidefx.com/). To a
glusterfs cluster. (2.0.8) I created the same file to the local hard
drive. The file created to the local hard drive works. The file
created to the glusterfs cluster does not.

The md5sum binary checksums of the files are different. The md5sum
ascii checksums are the the same.

I have straces of both processes and I am interested in any feedback
that is possible on this topic. I have posted here before about other
Visual Effects tools having similar problems. (Rendermans PTFilter,
3Dlights tdlmake) So there is something that this software is doing
that goes not work with glusterfs.

When the Glusterfs volume is exported via NFS or CIFS this problem is
not present. It is only when using the GlusterFS native client.
