[Gluster-users] Docs on gluster parameters

 Differently, the Gluster docs missing quite a bit regarding the available
options that can be used in the volumes.
Not only that, there are some options that might corrupt data and do not
have proper documentation, for example, disable Sharding will lead to data
corruption and I think it does not give any warning? "maybe I'm wrong
regarding the warning tho" and I can not find any details about it in the
official Gluster docs. The same goes for multiple clients accessing a
volume with Sharding enabled.
also, in some cases, write-behind and stat-prefetch can lead to data
inconsistency if multiple clients accessing the same data.
I think having solid "Official" Gluster docs with all of these details is
essential to have stable Gluster deployments.
