[Gluster-users] Solving healing and split-brain problems

Hi, I've got a similar issue on CentOS 6.4 + GlusterFS 3.4.0.

Yesterday I shut down one node in a replicated volume for some hardware
maintenance, and after bringing it up a few minutes later the healing
started automatically.  The healing has been going for 18 hours and
seems to be in a loop or something.

# gluster volume heal homes info

My gut says that there is split brain, but:

# gluster volume heal homes info split-brain | grep entries
Number of entries: 0
Number of entries: 0

I'm not sure how to interpret this.
