Hi All,

I'm running GlusterFS on a cluster hosted in AWS. I have a script which provisions my instances and thus will set up GlusterFS (specifically: glusterfs 3.5.8).

My issue is that this only works ~50% of the time and the other 50% of the time one of the peers will be 'stuck' in the following state:

root at ip-xx-xx-xx-1:/home/ubuntu# gluster peer status
Number of Peers: 3

Hostname: xx.xx.xx.2
Uuid: 3b4c1fb9-b325-4204-98fd-2eb739fa867f
State: Peer in Cluster (Connected)

Hostname: xx.xx.xx.3
Uuid: acfc1794-9080-4eb0-8f69-3abe78bbee16
State: Sent and Received peer request (Connected)

Hostname: xx.xx.xx.4
Uuid: af33463d-1b32-4ffb-a4f0-46ce16151e2f
State: Peer in Cluster (Connected)

Running gluster peer status on the instance that is affected yields:

root at ip-xx-xx-xx-3:/var/log/glusterfs# gluster peer status
Number of Peers: 1

Hostname: xx.xx.xx.1
Uuid: c4f17e9a-893b-48f0-a014-1a05cca09d01
State: Peer is connected and Accepted (Connected)

Of which the status (Connected) in this case, will fluctuate between 'Connected' and 'Disconnected'.

I have been unable to locate the cause of this issue. Has this been encountered before, and if so is there a general fix? I haven't been able to find anything as of yet.

Many thanks,
