I see that bricks are mounted in /gluster/brick3 and that is the

Good that there is an RFE. Thanks




BTW: I see that after creating a volume optimized for oVirt in
web admin gui of 4.1.2 I get slight option for it in respect for
a pre-existing volume created in 4.0.5 during initial setup with
gdeploy.

NOTE: during 4.0.5 setup I had gluster 3.7 installed, while now I
have gluster 3.10 (manually updated from CentOS storage SIG)

Making a "gluster volume info" and then a diff of the output for
the 2 volumes I have:

new volume ==   <
old volume  ==>

Do I have to change anything for the newly created one?

No, you do not need to change anything for the new volume. But if
you plan to enable o-direct on the volume then you will have to
disable/turn off remote-dio.


OK.
Again, in ovirt-gluster.conf file I see there was this kind of setting 
for the Gluster volumes when running gdeploy for them:

key=group,storage.owner-uid,storage.owner-gid,features.shard,features.shard-block-size,performance.low-prio-threads,cluster.data-self-heal-algorithm,cluster.locking-scheme,cluster.shd-wait-qlength,cluster.shd-max-threads,network.ping-timeout,user.cifs,performance.strict-o-direct,network.remote-dio,cluster.granular-entry-heal
value=virt,36,36,on,512MB,32,full,granular,1,8,30,off,on,off,on
brick_dirs=/gluster/brick1/engine
I'm going to crosscheck now what are the suggested values for oVirt 
4.1 and Gluster 3.10 combined...
Now virt group sets the shard block size and it is the default which is 
4MB and is the suggested value. With 4MB shards we see that healing is 
much faster with granular entry heal being enabled on the volume.


I am not sure why the conf file again sets the shard size. May be this 
can be removed from the file.


Other than this everything looks good for me.


I was in particular worried by the difference 
of features.shard-block-size but after reading this


http://blog.gluster.org/2015/12/introducing-shard-translator/

I'm not sure if 512Mb is the best in case of VMs storage I'm going 
to dig more eventually


Thanks,
Gianluca

What does it mean with "created externally"?
The next step from os point would be volume creation but it is
indeed what I would like to do from the gui...

[ovirt-users] How to create a new Gluster volume

Hello,
