[Gluster-users] Xenserver Gluster Storage Repository Question

I've been working with gluster for about a week now.  So far, I can see myself moving off my existing Redhat GFS cluster for gluster.  I'm doing some testing and don't completely understand the client side yet.   Let me explain.   I have two servers both have a brick with 275GB of storage.  Gluster is setup and replicating the files to each node.  I mounted the volume on node1.  I setup a Xenserver and connected to node1.  Creating VMs using the gluster SR on node1 is working.  However, I only see 275GB available on the SR.   Is this because I have volume mounted on a server node?  Should I have a separate client that mounts the volume?  From what I understand the client will still mount 1 server.  I do have a few more servers I can add to my gluster.  Before I continue with my setup, I am curious will the Xenserver only see how available storage on the node that it connects to.   I guess I was thinking I would see a volume that has the combined storage capacity not just one disk.

Any insight would be helpful.
