Hi Tomo,

That is correct. The gluster volume rebalance is no more dependent on gluster-fuse package.

With regards,

Let me confirm that gluster-fuse package is not required in NFS-server-use of GlusterFS-3.3.0 as 'glaster volume rebalance' dose not use FUSE.

For now, yes, there is a possibility that single volume can have multiple rebalance operations going on (on different machines). Even though it should not break any thing, it will degrade the performance. For now, preventing this should be taken care by admin.
