Description nchilaka 2016-08-11 16:12:08 UTC
Description of problem:
let us think that we have a 3x(8+3) volume
no if i want to remove bricks of  the second dht subvol , then i have to find out the bricks in that subvol
currently there is no clear way of the admin knowing. He/she needs to consider the list of bricks from brick12 ...brick22 from the volume info.
And now to remove the admin needs to mention each of that brick.

Instead why not make it something like gluster v remove-brick <vname> dht-subvol-number/group number.
We can display the vol info in groups and each group with an ID, say 1,2,3 and so on
the admin can just enter gluster v remove-brick vname groupid 2

The referenced issue has been closed, so I assume this bug can be closed as well.

This feature should be supported with GD2.

Comment 6 Xavi Hernandez 2018-10-25 08:53:07 UTC
Sorry for closing this. I thought it was an upstream bug...

Leaving this open until the feature is available, but changing the component to "glusterd" as it has nothing to do with "disperse".
