[Gluster-users] Bitrot: Time of signing depending on the file size???

Hello Amudhan,

What does exactly mean "it takes < 250KB/s"?
I figured out this discussion between you and Kotresh:
Kotresh mentioned there that the problem is because for some files fd
process are still up in the brick process list. Bitrot signer can only sign
a file if the fd is closed. And according to my observations it seems to be
that as bigger a file is as longer the fd is still up. I could verify this
with a 500MiB file and some smaller files. After a specific time only the
fd for the 500MiB was up and the file still had no signature, for the
smaller files there were no fds and they already had a signature.

Does anybody know what is the reason for this? For me it looks loke a bug.
