> Shouldn't gluster increase the image size?

This morning i've checked the image size and it was properly increased.
So, gluster is able to increase (by adding shards) the VM image only
when needed, right?
I've started with a 100GB qcow2 image that was preallocated by gluster
(1600 shards created, 64MB each) even if the qcow2 image was only a
couple of GB (a debian minimal install) then I've increased the image
to 150GB, nothing changed.

I've created a huge file (120GB) with random content and this morning
the stored file was increased up to 133GB
