[Gluster-users] Gluster not recognizing available space

Hi Brian,

gluster-0-1 did not recognize the delaylog option,
but when I mounted the disk with nobarrier,inode64
I was able to write to the disk both directly
and from a client through gluster.

Assuming inode64 was the key, was the problem
that XFS could not address the inodes withour
64 bit representation?  Just curious.

Problem solved!  Thanks!
