And just to jump in with a similar issue:
What's the preferred way to backup a glusterfs brick, and even more important:
how to restore it?
My prospective use of glusterfs will be quasi-static storage of data which
are hard to reproduce from other sources (mostly because of bandwidth reasons)
so there's a need to keep a local backup (and since several n-TB volumes are
involved, having only one overall backup might become tricky). OTOH there 
may be ways to fill a volume without glusterfs being aware of it - is there
a way yet to tell glusterfs not to write to an individual volume?
