Hi, James,

some test cases as followed,

1. postmark to create/delete many small files, configuration postmark.conf is,
set size 2048 6096
set number 100000
set location /mnt/dhtstp
set subdirectories 100
set read 512
set write 512

2. iozone to test performance
iozone -o -c -r 4m (or 4k) -s 32g -i 0 -i 1 -i 2 -t 8

3. extract glusterfs-3.2.1.tar.gz and compile

4. extract linux kernel linux-pnfs.tar.bz2 and compile

All of above test cases are finished normally, and they were all failed before applying the patch.

Hi Liuben.
Could you possibly post some of  your tests to the list to help us that encounter similar problems?

The patch 7573 works fine. I have many tests and can confirm the patch fixes the issue.
thanks a lot

> Hi Liuben, 
http://patches.gluster.com/patch/7573/ should fix the issue. The patch has gone to only master branch (ie, release will be only in 3.3.0) If you can confirm applying this patch fixes the issue, then we can make sure next releases in 3.2.x (or 3.1.x branch) will be having this fix.

It's a new gluster installation from 3.2.1 version, and no files in gluster at beginning, also no rebalance.
It's very strange, distributed volume, distributed + repilca volume, and distributed + full stripe(stripe count = bricks count, just like RAID0) volume works fine, only distributed + stripe (stripe count < bricks count) has such issues.

should you clean up the bad files from a rebalance on a previous version to fix this?
