[Gluster-users] multiple volumes on same brick?

Gluster users,

We have a multiple node setup where each server has a single XFS brick
(underlying storage is hardware battery backed raid6).  Are there any
issues creating multiple gluster volumes using the same underlying bricks
from a performance or management standpoint?

or would it be better to setup many smaller bricks via RAID1 to support
multiple volumes.

Current setup:

NODE:/brick1    (raid6 8 disk per brick)

Smaller Brick setup:

NODE:/brick1 /brick2 /brick3 /brick4  (raid1 2 disk per brick)
