Is your CPU usage through the roof?

If you haven't already, I'd suggest

- changing "cluster.data-self-heal-algorithm" to "full"

- And restarting the gluster volume if possible

I have a suspicion something changed recently with heal, I've noticed 
that it takes a long time (hours) to kick in when the diff algorithm is 
used. I don't recall it doing this with 3.7.11
