features/changelog: record mknod if tier-dht linkto is set
This is a series of patches which aims to fix geo-replication in a Tiering Volume. Problem: Consider, a file is placed in volume initially and then hot tier is attached. During any operation on the file, due to lookup a linkto file is created in hot tier. Now, any namespace operation carried out on the file is recorded in both cold and hot tier. There is a room for races when both changelogs are replayed. Solution: So, We are going to replay (namespace related)operations only in the hot tier. Why? a. If the file is directly placed in Hot tier, all fops will be recorded in HOT tier. b. If the file is already present in Cold tier, and if any fop is carried out, it creates linkto file in Hot tier. Now, operations like UNLINK, RENAME are captured in Hot tier(by means of linkto file). This way, we can get both tier's operation in HOT tier itself. But, We may miss initial Data sync immediately after creating the file as it is only recording MKNOD. So, if MKNOD encountered with sticky bit set, queue DATA operation for the corresponding gfid. ( This geo-rep related changes are addressed in this patch: ) So, If tier-dht linkto is set, we need to record the corresponding MKNOD. Earlier this was avoided as it was set as INTERNAL fop. (This is addressed here in this patch) Change-Id: I25514fe3e25f68592a8d6361507f8c8a4fcb70b1 BUG: 1275173 Reviewed-on: Signed-off-by: Saravanakumar Arumugam <> Reviewed-on: Tested-by: Gluster Build System <> Tested-by: NetBSD Build System <> Reviewed-by: Venky Shankar <>
