Hello again,

i could resolve the self heal problems with the missing gfid files on
one of the servers by deleting the gfid files on the other server.

They had a link count of 1 which means that the file on that the gfid
pointed was already deleted.

We have still these errors

[2014-07-08 09:09:43.564488] W
0-gluster_dateisystem-client-0: remote operation failed: File exists
(00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000 ->

which appear in the glusterfshd.log and these

[2014-07-08 09:13:31.198462] E
[0x7f5d29f8b3c9]))) 0-: Assertion failed: 0

from the nfs.log.

I think the error messages belong together but I don't have any idea
how to solve them.

Still we have got a very bad performance issue. The system load on the
servers is above 20 and nearly no one is able to work in here on a

Hope for help
