[Gluster-users] Double counting of quota

Hi Vijiay,
the use case is very simple.
I'm using gluster 3.7.1 with a replicated volume (replica 2), enabling quota. The 2 bricks are on the same machine but using two disks of the same size, but unfortunately one of them is slower, but I think it is irrelevant. Although I do not think it is important for this use case, but I want to note that the volumes are xfs formatted with default options and are thin logical volumes.
The gluster server is running on CentIS 7.1.
The problem occurs when using rsync to copy from an external source into the gluster volume: if I copy without specifying the temp dir rsync uses the current dir for temporaries and this is taken into account, at least in one of the two bricks. I can confirm it's only happening in one of the bricks by looking at the xattrs of the same dir on the two bricks, as the quota values are different.
At the moment I have recreated the bricks and started the copy over and it seems much better now that I'm explicitly asking rsync to use /tmp for temporaries.
Anyways, I'm still seeing errors in the logs that I will report later.
Many thanks for the help,

I suppose this is someway connected to the error on removexattr I’m seeing. The temporary solution I’ve found is to use rsync with the option to write the temp files to /tmp, but it would be very interesting to understand why this is happening.
