[Gluster-users] Self heal with VM Storage

I am running gluster as a storage backend for VM storage (KVM guests). If
one of the bricks is taken offline (even for an instant), on bringing it
back up it runs the metadata check. This causes the guest to both stop
responding until the check finishes and also to ruin data that was in
process (sql data for instance). I'm guessing the file is being locked while
checked. Is there any way to fix for this? Without being able to fix for
this, I'm not certain how viable gluster will be, or can be for VM storage.
