Gluster version is standard Ubuntu 14.04 LTS repo version -

The gluster volume heal <volume> info command produces a lot of output.  
There are a number of <gfid:hashnumber> entries for both nodes and a few 
directories in the list as well.  Checking the directories on both nodes 
and the files appear to be the same on each so I resolved those issues.  
There are, however, still a large number of gfid files listed from the 
gluster volume heal eukleia info command.  There are also a large number 
of gfid files and one file listed from the gluster volume heal eukleia 
info split-brain and one file.  This file no longer exists on either of 
the bricks or the mounted filesystems.

Is there any way to clear these down or resolve this?
