I am very new to Gluster, but I would think that solution 2 is the
safest: you don't mix-up the rebuild from two different sources, only
Gluster is involved in rebuilding.
Though I have read that you can self-heal with a time parameter to
limit the find to the files that were modified since your brick was
off line. So I beleive that could be extended to the time since your
Instead of configuring your 8 disks in RAID 0, I would use JOBD and
let Gluster do the concatenation. That way, when you replace a disk,
you just have 125 GB to self-heal.
