GlusterFS 6 : Replication Configuration
2019/10/08
 
Configure Storage Clustering with GlusterFS.
For example, Create a Replication volume with 3 Nodes.
It's possible to create Replication volume with 2 Nodes but it's not recommended because split-brain syndrome maybe happens on [replica 2 volume]. As a countermeasure for split-brain, it is recommended to create volume with more than 3 Nodes or set [arbiter volume].

|   node03.srv.world   +----------+

+----------------------+

 
It is strongly recommended to use partitions for GlusterFS volumes that are different from the / partition.
On this example, it shows settings on the environment that all nodes has [sdb1] and mount it to [/glusterfs].

[2] Create a Directory for GlusterFS Volume on all Nodes.
[root@node01 ~]#
mkdir -p /glusterfs/replica

[3] Configure Clustering like follows on a node. (it's OK on any node)
# probe the node

[root@node01 ~]#
gluster peer probe node02

peer probe: success.
[root@node01 ~]#
gluster peer probe node03

peer probe: success.
# confirm status

[root@node01 ~]#
gluster peer status

Number of Peers: 2

Hostname: node02
Uuid: d438d612-77f3-4802-9978-336aa722f796
State: Peer in Cluster (Connected)

Hostname: node03
Uuid: 1f24dd87-c20e-4e14-b6e1-36a7f8b0f360
State: Peer in Cluster (Connected)

# create volume

[root@node01 ~]#
gluster volume create vol_replica replica 3 transport tcp \
node01:/glusterfs/replica \
node02:/glusterfs/replica \
node03:/glusterfs/replica

volume create: vol_replica: success: please start the volume to access data
# start volume

[root@node01 ~]#
gluster volume start vol_replica

volume start: vol_replica: success
# confirm volume info

[root@node01 ~]#
gluster volume info
