.glusterfs is over 900GB

Hey y’all, got a weird one for you.


I am unfortunately supporting this really weird Gluster volume, where it’s a single-brick/single-node volume that has many files written every minute to it. Its very suboptimal, but I’m kind of stuck with it until the application team migrates off Linux 5 (yes… I know). gluster-server is running version 6.10, gluster-client is mounting via NFS as 3.6 is not compatible with gluster-server 6.10.


Anyways, the actual content of the volume is maybe a total of 15GB, but the .glusterfs directory is over 900GB, full of backups of the files? I feel that it’s probably related to being unable to self-heal because it’s only one volume, but then these files still just live out there.


Can I safely delete them? Should I be doing something else? Do I just deal with it until I can get the client server off Linux 5?
