Sadly I have no idea why rebalance did that , so you should check the logs on all nodes for clues.

Is there any reason why you used "force" in that command ?

We have distributed gluster volume spread across 4 bricks.  Yesterday I noticed that the remaining space was uneven (about 2.7TB, 1.7TB, 1TB, 1TB) so I issued the following rebalance command

    * gluster volume rebalance <VOLNAME> start force

Today I see that instead, things have gotten even more unbalanced (64G 853G 6.2T 20K).  I'm killing the rebalance now.  What should I do to make sure that I get a successful rebalance?
