> But what about if the file is a big image file of xen or kvm
I run replicate across two nodes, upon which I host xen images.
I often reboot one of the nodes while the xen machines are running.
I live migrate the VM's to the node that is staying up, then back
again when the reboot is complete.
When migrating back, gluster re-syncs the image no problems.
The re-sync does cause a xen migration or a xen create to take longer,
of course, but it all works as expected.
Self-healing works fine, just as long as you never access the
underlying FS directly.
