I have a 3x2 hot tier on NVMe drives with a 3x2 cold tier on RAID6 drives.

# gluster vol info 1nvme-distrep3x2

Volume Name: 1nvme-distrep3x2
Type: Tier
Volume ID: 21e3fc14-c35c-40c5-8e46-c258c1302607
Status: Started
Number of Bricks: 12
Transport-type: tcp
Hot Tier :
Hot Tier Type : Distributed-Replicate
Number of Bricks: 3 x 2 = 6
Brick1: n5:/rhgs/hotbricks/1nvme-distrep3x2-hot

Cold Tier:

I am attempting to run the 'smallfile' benchmark tool on this volume. The
'smallfile' tool creates a starting gate directory and files in a shared
filesystem location. The first run (write) works as expected.

# smallfile_cli.py --threads 12 --file-size 4096 --files 300 --top
/rhgs/client/1nvme-distrep3x2 --host-set
c0,c1,c2,c3,c4,c5,c6,c7,c8,c9,c10,c11 --prefix test1 --stonewall Y
--network-sync-dir /rhgs/client/1nvme-distrep3x2/smf1 --operation create

For the second run (read), I believe that smallfile attempts first to 'rm
-rf' the "network-sync-dir" path, which fails with ENOTEMPTY, causing the
run to fail

# smallfile_cli.py --threads 12 --file-size 4096 --files 300 --top
/rhgs/client/1nvme-distrep3x2 --host-set
c0,c1,c2,c3,c4,c5,c6,c7,c8,c9,c10,c11 --prefix test1 --stonewall Y
--network-sync-dir /rhgs/client/1nvme-distrep3x2/smf1 --operation create
...

    os.rmdir(path)
OSError: [Errno 39] Directory not empty:
'/rhgs/client/1nvme-distrep3x2/smf1'


>From the client perspective, the directory is clearly empty.

# ls -a /rhgs/client/1nvme-distrep3x2/smf1/
.  ..


And a quick search on the bricks shows that the hot tier on the last
replica pair is the offender.

# for i in {0..5}; do ssh n$i "hostname; ls
/rhgs/coldbricks/1nvme-distrep3x2/smf1 | wc -l; ls
/rhgs/hotbricks/1nvme-distrep3x2-hot/smf1 | wc -l"; donerhosd0

(For the record, multiple runs of this reproducer show that it is
consistently the hot tier that is to blame, but it is not always the same
replica pair.)


Can someone try recreating this scenario to see if the problem is
consistent? Please reach out if you need me to provide any further details.
