Hi all,

Documentation says:  https://gluster.readthedocs.io/en/latest/Administrator%20Guide/Trash/ <https://gluster.readthedocs.io/en/latest/Administrator%20Guide/Trash/>

gluster volume set <VOLNAME> features.trash-max-filesize <size>

This command can be used to filter files entering trash directory based on their size. Files above trash_max_filesize are deleted/truncated directly.Value for size may be followed by multiplicative suffixes as KB(=1024 bytes), MB(=1024*1024 bytes) and GB(=1024*1024*1024 bytes). Default size is set to 5MB. Considering the fact that trash directory is consuming the glusterfs volume space, trash feature is implemented to function in such a way that it directly deletes/truncates files with size > 1GB even if this option is set to some value greater than 1GB.

Is there any workaround (short of changing source code and rebuilding) that can allow me to override this 1GB hard limit?  We store a lot of large files, and having a limit of 1GB greatly reduces the value of this trashcan feature for us.

Many thanks,
