This should be actually the line I haven't found documented. But  
probably i just didn't search for it hard enough.
Is the argument "replica 2" already documented somewhere os should i  
browse the code in the meantime for all the possible arguments to  
gluster command?

Ok, i try it again. There therea are translators available in  
glusterfs (see [1]). How do i set the translaters in 3.1. E.g. the  
quota translater, how/where do i config it. I thought it should be  
possible to do this with the gluster command otherwise i have to  
manually configure glusterfsd.vol files on all nodes. How do you  
achieve translator configuration in Version 3.1? Or better: What is  
the best/recommended way in 3.1 to achieve this?

The second part of the question is about the authentication mechanism  
in glusterfs. IP based and user/password based. What's the best way to  
configure this feature in 3.1? In the previous version you had to  
manually change the glusterfsd.vol files.

Sorry for the missunderstanding, I meant 'hidden to me' in the sense I  
wasn't able to find documentation regarding my questions for 3.1
