Good morning everyone, 

I am running GlusterFS v. 3.3.1. I have a test server set up with a distributed (not distributed replicated) volume comprised of 5 bricks. 

I have a directory in the GlusterFS with ~7000 xml files. When mounted over fuse, GlusterFS reports the correct number of files. 

However, when I "ls" the directory on the bricks, brick 1-4 each report ~1400 files, but brick 5 reports ~7000 files including duplicates of files on other bricks. 

How should I go about fixing a situation like this? Is a rebalance the right way to handle this? Will it take care of the duplicates?
