That's ok for me, but my question is:
how does gluster detect a failed cluster on a disk?
Will it detect properly and start serving data from the other server?

In case of whole disk failure its easy, disk is not working and gluster will
use the other server, but if the disk is ok and only a single sector
is not readable?
