Hello all.

I have a volume setup as:
root at str957-biostor:~# gluster v info BigVol

Volume Name: BigVol
Type: Distributed-Replicate
Volume ID: c51926bd-6715-46b2-8bb3-8c915ec47e28
Status: Started
Snapshot Count: 0
Number of Bricks: 28 x (2 + 1) = 84
Transport-type: tcp
Brick1: str957-biostor2:/srv/bricks/00/BigVol
Brick2: str957-biostor:/srv/bricks/00/BigVol
Brick3: str957-biostq:/srv/arbiters/00/BigVol (arbiter)

After a couple failures (a disk on biostor2 went "missing", and glusterd
on biostq got killed by OOM) I noticed that some files can't be accessed
from the clients:
$ ls -lh 1_germline_CGTACTAG_L005_R*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 e.f domain^users 2,0G apr 24  2015
-rwxr-xr-x 1 e.f domain^users 2,0G apr 24  2015
$ ls -lh 1_germline_CGTACTAG_L005_R1_001.fastq.gz
ls: cannot access '1_germline_CGTACTAG_L005_R1_001.fastq.gz':
Input/output error
(note that if I request ls for more files, it works...).

The files have exactly the same contents (verified via md5sum). The only
difference is in getfattr: trusted.bit-rot.version is
0x17000000000000005f3f9e670002ad5b on a node and
0x12000000000000005f3ce7af000dccad on the other.

On the client, the log reports:

As suggested on IRC, I tested the RAM, but the only thing I got have
been a "Peer rejected" status due to another OOM kill. No problem, I've
been able to resolve it, but the original problem still remains.

What else can I do?
