The client sees one device, who is a wrapper device for all devices in servers. Writing/reading to the device will be distributed to different servers according to different writing/reading position, size, etc ....

There isn't very much in the way of current GNBD documentation

https://open.datacore.ch/DCwiki.open/Wiki.jsp?page=GFS
https://open.datacore.ch/DCwiki.open/Wiki.jsp?page=GFS.GNBD.Usage

has the most current info

Otherwise, there are the man pages, which I haven't got around to updating
yet, but are still mostly accurate.

Oh, and
http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/csgfs/admin-guide/

This is the old administrator's guide, but again, it's mostly uptodate.
As soon as I finish up some coding that needs to get done, I will set to
work on some documentation.

If this isn't enough, I'd be glad to answer any questions you have, either
via email, or via IRC (#linux-cluster on freenode)

Good luck.
