Do you have a lot of directories?

Each directory will use one resolution log entry as an anchor point
(common ancestor) for server-server resolution. But when volumes are
created they only get about 4096 resolution log entries. When we run out
the servers can't keep track of new updates.

You can bump this limit up with volutil,

    volutil setlogparms 2000001 reson 4 logsize 32768

This would set the logsize to 32768 (32K entries) for volume replica
2000001. You'd need to do this for each volume replica in a replicated

Yeah, 20MB definitely should be sufficient. I've not seen a server that
updates close to that amount of file/directory metadata in a single RVM
