[Gluster-users] QEMU gfapi segfault

Hey folks, 

I'm working on tracking down rogue QEMU segfaults in my infrastructure that look to be dying due to gluster. The tips that I get is that the process is in disk sleep when it dies and the process is backed only by gluster and the segfault lends to io system issues. Unfortunately I haven't figured out how to get a full crash dump so I can run it through apport-retrace to get exactly what went wrong. The other interesting thing is this happens only when gluster is under heavy load. Any tips about debugging further or getting this fixed up would be appreciated.

Nothing interesting in the VM log or around the segfault event in the hypervisor log
