Can you please send the following:

1. The rebalance logs (/var/log/gluster/<volname>-rebalance.log) from each
node
2. The output of the following for the root of each brick:
  getfattr -e hex -m . -d <path to brick>
3. gluster volume info
4. The version of glusterfs that you are running.
5. gluster volume rebalance <volname> status

Are the file sizes more or less the same or are there large variations in
them?


Thanks,
Nithya
