MogileFS requires manual interaction to mark a device as dead, though 
some have working monitoring which can also do it for you.

So, given storage nodes A, B, C. You have files on all three.

Device B goes offline. Your monitoring bleeps, you confirm it's dead, 
and use mogadm to mark the device as 'dead'. Once the device is marked 
dead, mogilefs will drain all of the files associated with that device, 
and the replicator will replicate new copies to A, C until the 
replication manager is satisfied.
