GlusterFS : Distributed Configuration2023/06/19

Configure Storage Clustering with GlusterFS.
For example, create a distributed volume with 2 Nodes.
This example shows to use 2 Nodes but it's possible to use more than 3 Nodes.
+----------------------+          |          +----------------------+
| [GlusterFS Server#1] | || [GlusterFS Server#2] |
|   +----------+----------+   |
|                      |                     |                      |
+----------------------+                     +----------------------+
           ⇑                                             ⇑
     file1, file3 ...                             file2, file4 ...

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.
mkdir -p /glusterfs/distributed

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

gluster peer probe node02

peer probe: success.
# confirm status

gluster peer status

Number of Peers: 1

Hostname: node02
Uuid: b4a101f1-4c74-469a-a682-75a2d1354f06
State: Peer in Cluster (Connected)

# create volume

gluster volume create vol_distributed transport tcp \
node01:/glusterfs/distributed \

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

gluster volume start vol_distributed

volume start: vol_distributed: success
# confirm volume info

gluster volume info

Volume Name: vol_distributed
