[Gluster-users] /var/lib/misc/glusterfsd growing and using up space on OS disk

Today while freeing up some space on my OS disk I just discovered that there is a /var/lib/misc/glusterfsd directory which seems to save data related to geo-replication.
In particular there is a hidden sub-directory called ".processed" as you can see here:
which contains one archive file per month, example:
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 152494080 Apr 30 23:34 archive_201704.tar
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 43284480 May 31 23:35 archive_201705.tar
These tar files seem to save the CHANGELOG files of geo replication. Are these the same files as located in /data/myvolume/brick/.glusterfs/changelogs ?
As these file with the time take some space and are located on my OS disk I was wondering if I can safely remove all these processed file?
Is there maybe a way of telling GlusterFS to regularly delete these files?
