GlusterFS : Striping Setting
Configure Storage Clustering.
For example, create a Striping 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] |
|   node01.srv.world   +----------+----------+   node02.srv.world   |
|                      |                     |                      |
+----------------------+                     +----------------------+

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 /glusterfs directory for GlusterFS Configuration on all Nodes.
[2] Create a Directory for GlusterFS Volume on all Nodes.
mkdir /glusterfs/striped

[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: e8a3bcde-013e-4910-bbe6-0ce70d2e8feb
State: Peer in Cluster (Connected)
