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.
It seems I have to de-select the checkbox "Show available bricks
from host" and so I can manually the the directory of the bricks
I see that bricks are mounted in /gluster/brick3 and that is the
reason it does not show anything in "Brick Directory" drop down
filed. If bricks are mounted under /gluster_bricks then it would
have detected automatically. There is an RFE which is raised to
detect bricks which are created manually.
I deployed this HCI system with gdeploy at oVirt 4.05 time, so I think
I used the "default" path that was proposed inside the
ovirt-gluster.conf file to feed gdeploy with...
I think it was based on this from Jason:
and this conf file
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
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:

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.
Again, in ovirt-gluster.conf file I see there was this kind of setting
for the Gluster volumes when running gdeploy for them:
I'm going to crosscheck now what are the suggested values for oVirt
4.1 and Gluster 3.10 combined...
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
I'm not sure if 512Mb is the best in case of VMs storage.... I'm going
to dig more eventually
