GlusterFS and Extended Attributes

Jeff Darcy over at has posted a very informative and in depth writeup detailing GlusterFS and it’s use of Extended Filesystem Attributes.  One of the areas in which I believe that many Gluster community members would like to see some improvement in, is the area of documentation.

You do not need to spend too much time on the Gluster-users mailing list in order to find frequent calls for more in depth and up to date Gluster documentation.

There is no doubt that the situation has improved greatly over the last 6 to 12 months, however room for improvement still exists, and this is an example of someone outside the inner circle at Gluster providing such a document.
