I've successfully set up GlusterFS 3.0 with a single server. I brought
on a 2nd server and setup AFR and have been working through the
mirroring process. I started an "ls -alR" to trigger a complete mirror
of all files between the two servers. After running for about 16 hours
I started getting kernel out of memory errors. Looking at top I see:
PID USER PR NI VIRT RES SHR S %CPU %MEM TIME+ COMMAND
2561 root 15 0 13.0g 8.9g 860 S 7 91.6 60:56.02 glusterfs
Seems that the client has used up all my memory (RAM and SWAP). Killing
the process returned all the memory to the OS.
BTW - I'm working on a 2.3Tb store that contains about 2.5 million files
in 65K folders.
