glusterfsd is the brick process. It does not do self-healing. Self 
healing is provided by a glusterfs process with "--volfile-id 
gluster/glustershd" and is started by glusterd. You can check to see if 
it's running with "gluster volume status".

All that command is going to do is stop your bricks. The restart command 
does a stop and start of glusterfsd. Since stop kills all the glusterfsd 
processes, your bricks will then be killed. It does not start the 
bricks, but rather tries to start a glusterfsd process with a default 
volfile setting. This would work if you had some legacy configuration 
that you still wanted to use, but does not work for restarting the 
self-heal process.

The command you're looking for would be "service glusterd restart" if 
the self-heal process needed restarted.
