Checking if a connection to the GlusterFS TCP server port (6996 IIRC)
is possible might be an indicator for working/failing - at least for
setups that use TCP. I don't know if anything like that is possible
for Infiniband-only setups.

IIRC, Nagios can check if a port is open on a remote machine. That
won't find something like disk/filesystem problems on the server, but
it could report crashed GlusterFS server processes and machines that
are not working at all.

I know that this simple method won't provide a positive status (=it
works) which would be preferable, but at least it can provide a
negative status (=_something_ failed on _that_ machine) in some cases.

IIRC, some time ago someone requested a syslog feature to debug
problems with GlusterFS as root filesystem for a diskless cluster -
are there any news on that?
Having the clients report problems to a central logging server might
be useful for monitoring.
