0x83a8b and 0x1b20b both hash to unlinked list bucket 11.
As to the rest of the trace, there appears to be a significant amount of
link activity on (directory) inode 0x83a8a (the immediately prior inode
to the inode involved in the race). The name data in the trace suggests
activity somewhere under .glusterfs. A couple questions:
1.) Any idea what entries point to this inode right now (e.g., how many
links on this inode) and where it resides in the fs (path)?
2.) Can you associate this kind of heavy remove/link pattern on a single
inode to a higher level activity? For example, if you were to watch the
trace data live, is this a normal pattern you observe? Does it only
occur when a rebalance is in progress? Or when a rebalance finishes? Any
detailed observations you can make in that regard could be helpful.
