GlusterFS : Replication Setting2017/06/21

Configure Storage Clustering.
For example, create a Replication volume with 2 servers.
This example shows to use 2 servers but it's possible to use more than 3 servers.
+----------------------+          |          +----------------------+
| [GlusterFS Server#1] | || [GlusterFS Server#2] |
|   +----------+----------+   |
|                      |                     |                      |
+----------------------+                     +----------------------+

It is recommended to use partitions for GlusterFS volumes which are different from the / partition. The environment on this example is set as that sdb1 is mounted on [/var/lib/glusterfs] directory for GlusterFS Configuration on all Nodes.
[2] Create a Directory for GlusterFS Volume on all Nodes.
mkdir -p /var/lib/glusterfs/replica

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

gluster peer probe node02

peer probe: success.
# show status

gluster peer status

Number of Peers: 1

Hostname: node02
Uuid: a39156f3-32cb-451e-9e34-08ce504d72bb
State: Peer in Cluster (Connected)

# create volume

gluster volume create vol_replica replica 2 transport tcp \
node01:/var/lib/glusterfs/replica \

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

gluster volume start vol_replica

volume start: vol_replica: success
# show volume info

gluster volume info

Options Reconfigured:
transport.address-family: inet
