2.7. Managing the glusterd Service

download PDF
After installing Red Hat Gluster Storage, the glusterd service automatically starts on all the servers in the trusted storage pool. The service can be manually started and stopped using the glusterd service commands.
Use Red Hat Gluster Storage to dynamically change the configuration of glusterFS volumes without restarting servers or remounting volumes on clients. The glusterFS daemon glusterd also offers elastic volume management.
Use the gluster CLI commands to decouple logical storage volumes from physical hardware. This allows the user to grow, shrink, and migrate storage volumes without any application downtime. As storage is added to the cluster, the volumes are distributed across the cluster. This distribution ensures that the cluster is always available despite changes to the underlying hardware.

2.7.1. Manually Starting and Stopping glusterd

Use the following instructions to manually start and stop the glusterd service.
  • Manually start glusterd as follows:
    # /etc/init.d/glusterd start
    # service glusterd start
  • Manually stop glusterd as follows:
    # /etc/init.d/glusterd stop
    # service glusterd stop
