I think you need the exact no. of files and size of files that need
healing to make any meaningful comparison of self-heal performance
VM workloads with sharding might not be the ideal 'reproducer' since you
really don't know how many shards get modified when a replica is down
and I/O on the VMs happen. I suppose you could try testing the heal
performance of a specific no. of files on a sharded volume and compare
My 2 cents.
