[Gluster-users] strange memory consumption with libgfapi

For those who are interested, colleague of mine found out the problem is 
this line:

itable = inode_table_new (131072, new_subvol);

in glfs-master.c (graph_setup function). That hard-coded number is huge! 
And looking at the history of Gluster sources, it seems that this number 
used to be a number of bytes, but it became number of inodes, but 
someone forgot to change this hard-coded value!

Anybody from RedHat here interested in fixing it?

Kind regards,
