[Gluster-users] .gluster folder full of dangling symlinks

Yes, I’ve seen your blog post, but I don’t understand why I get so many problems with symlinks. Our use cases are insert and read-only. We don’t update our files, and we don’t move them either, and only 1 server out of 8 generates missing links like these. I understand the mappings with the gfids, but I don’t know why it gets there.

That server is not “on balance” with the others, it seems to hold more data than the others, we’re trying to rebalance the gluster, but it doesn’t seem to work, and I suspect the broken symlinks to prevent the rebalancing.

Hello, I have a Gluster cluster with the following layout: 4 x 2
I have one brick which its .gluster folder is full of dangling links. We’ve tried cleaning them out and triggering a heal, but they keep coming back. Is there something I could try?
