swift 1.9.0 handoff query

We have configured a swift 1.9.0 cluster with 5 zones and 3 replicas, and is functioning without any issues.

I am aware that there has been an improvement in handoff node selection since swift 1.8.0. I see swift-get-nodes output as below :

Server:Port Device HDD02 Server:Port Device HDD03 Server:Port Device HDD05 Server:Port Device HDD02 [Handoff] Server:Port Device HDD04 [Handoff] Server:Port Device HDD09 [Handoff]

1) Why is it showing 3 handoffs instead of two as we only have 5 zones. 2) zone 1 is having a copy of the data and another disk is shown from the same zone as handoff

Is this output expected? Is this due to the new handoff selection mechanism or anything is wrong here?

I have three nodes in three zones. Each node has 8 hard disks known to swift as /srv/node/sdc1, sdd1, ...sdj1 I set three replicas.

When I run the command "swift stat", it shows:

Account: AUTH_1c12ca6d87d44d67aa5d63c807babc6a Containers: 2 Objects: 1449 Bytes: 584777968428 Accept-Ranges: bytes X-Timestamp: 1381982350.81689 Content-Type: text/plain; charset=utf-8

Because I have only three nodes and three replica, I logged in to one node, and "cd /srv/node", and do the following:

[root@dsb1 node]# find . -type f -name "*data" | wc -l 1449

which is the same as the results from "swift stat". However, there are many objects stored in a hard disk which is shown as "[handoff]" according to swift-get-nodes /etc/swift/object.ring.gz MyAccount". These objects in the handoff hard disk are counted to the number 1449. If the cluster is operating normally, the objects in handoff node should be cleaned, am I right?
