I have installed GlusterFS one month ago, and replication have many issues :
First of all, our infrastructure, 2 storage array of 8Tb in replication
mode... We have our backups file on this arrays, so 6Tb of datas.

I want replicate datas on the second storrage array, so, i use this command
# gluster volume rebalance REP_SVG migrate-data start
And gluster start to replicate, in 2 weeks we had 2.6Yb of datas replicated.
But now, replication fail after about one day of replication.... with many

So i have two questions, are there any option or command to boost
replication ?
We have to continue to backup our servers... so during the réplication, many
files are rotated/moved/added.
Is it a problem for gluster to replicatde datas during a backup session ?

For now, we can't replicate any datas more ! We need help.
