We store KVM images on Gluster 3.3 for our OpenStack cloud. It performs ok
what I've seen so far (we use cache=writeback).
>From my short experience with Gluster 3.3 the granular locking stuff is not
working as expected. We made some tests with a replicate+distributed
volume, the VM was locked during the self-heal. I have no clue why.
