remove_me files building up

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]



We're running a cluster with two data nodes and one arbiter, and have sharding enabled.

We had an issue a while back where one of the server's crashed, we got the server back up and running and ensured that all healing entries cleared, and also increased the server spec (CPU/Mem) as this seemed to be the potential cause.

Since then however, we've seen some strange behaviour, whereby a lot of 'remove_me' files are building up under `/data/glusterfs/gv1/brick2/brick/.shard/.remove_me/` and `/data/glusterfs/gv1/brick3/brick/.shard/.remove_me/`. This is causing the arbiter to run out of space on brick2 and brick3, as the remove_me files are constantly increasing.

brick1 appears to be fine, the disk usage increases throughout the day and drops down in line with the trend of the brick on the data nodes. We see the disk usage increase and drop throughout the day on the data nodes for brick2 and brick3 as well, but while the arbiter follows the same trend of the disk usage increasing, it doesn't drop at any point.

This is the output of some gluster commands, occasional heal entries come and go:

We're not sure if this is a potential bug or if something's corrupted that we don't have visibility of, so any pointers/suggestions about how to approach this would be appreciated.
