$ cp conf/alluxio-site.properties.template conf/alluxio-site.properties
Assuming the GlusterFS bricks are co-located with Alluxio nodes, the GlusterFS volume is mounted at

Run a simple example program:
$ ./bin/alluxio runTests
Visit your GlusterFS volume to verify the files and directories created by Alluxio exist. For this test, you should see files named like:
To stop Alluxio, you can run:
$ ./bin/alluxio-stop.sh local
