This should be actually the line I haven't found documented. But

Is the argument "replica 2" already documented somewhere os should i
browse the code in the meantime for all the possible arguments to

Ok, i try it again. There therea are translators available in
glusterfs (see ). How do i set the translaters in 3.1. E.g. the
quota translater, how/where do i config it. I thought it should be
possible to do this with the gluster command otherwise i have to
manually configure glusterfsd.vol files on all nodes. How do you
achieve translator configuration in Version 3.1? Or better: What is
the best/recommended way in 3.1 to achieve this?
The second part of the question is about the authentication mechanism
in glusterfs. IP based and user/password based. What's the best way to
configure this feature in 3.1? In the previous version you had to
manually change the glusterfsd.vol files.

Sorry for the missunderstanding, I meant 'hidden to me' in the sense I
wasn't able to find documentation regarding my questions for 3.1
