I don't think that's a problem, they do tend to show the heal on every brick
but the one being healed .. I think the sources show the file to heal, not the
dirty one.
At least that's what I noticed on my clusters.

Sorry, no idea on that, I never used arbiter setups.

Well it'd be good to know why they need healing, for sure.
I don't know of any way to get that on the gluster side, you need to
find a way on oVirt to redirect the output of the qemu process somewhere.
That's where you'll find the libgfapi logs.
Never used oVirt so I can't really help on that :/
