[Gluster-users] What is glustershd ?

Hi Gluster users !

In the process of upgrading a Gluster 3.0.0 platform to 3.3.0, I'm trying
to understand how GlusterFS 3.3.0 is working.

I can't find any documentation which explains what's the role of glustershd.
The only thing I (think I) understand is that the glustershd-server.vol is
only generated for replicated volumes. It contains a cluster/replicate
volume which replicate my bricks. It's the same pattern I found in

I guess <volname>-fuse.vol is the volfile used by gluster clients to mount
the volume.
But what about glustershd-server.vol, and the gluster instance using it ?
What part of gluster communicates with glustershd ?

Thanks for your help!
