Subject: Re: [Gluster-users] Why files goes to hot tier and cold tier at same 


The actual data will be in the hot tier only till demotion. The file
that you see on the cold tier is just a linkto file of the file on the
hot tier.
These linkto file are necessary for the internal working of the tier.
