Distribute by default will distribute _files_ evenly among its
subvolumes. However, if one of the files is larger than the disk space
available on the node it gets scheduled to, then distribute can do
nothing. If you regularly want to store big files which might not fit
on one of your subvolumes, you might want to try the 'stripe'
