[Gluster-users] GlusterFS as virtual machine storage

I currently only have a Windows 2012 R2 server VM in testing on top of
the gluster storage, so I will have to take some time to provision a
couple Linux VMs with both ext4 and XFS to see what happens on those.

The Windows server VM is OK with killall glusterfsd, but when the 42
second timeout goes into effect, it gets paused and I have to go into
RHEVM to un-pause it.
