there is good suggestion here : http://docs.gluster.org/en/latest/Administrator%20Guide/arbiter-volumes-and-quorum/#arbiter-bricks-sizing <http://docs.gluster.org/en/latest/Administrator%20Guide/arbiter-volumes-and-quorum/#arbiter-bricks-sizing>
Since the arbiter brick does not store file data, its disk usage will be considerably less than the other bricks of the replica. The sizing of the brick will depend on how many files you plan to store in the volume. A good estimate will be 4kb times the number of files in the replica.
