[Gluster-users] Volume Creation - Best Practices

Wondering if there is a best practice for volume creation. I don't see this
information in the documentation. For example.
I have a 10 node distribute-replicate setup with one large xfs filesystem
mounted on each node.

Is it OK for me to have just one xfs filesystem mounted and use
subdirectories for my bricks for multiple volume creation?
So I could have, lets say 10 different volumes but each using a brick as
subdir on my single xfs filesystem on each node?
In other words multiple bricks on one xfs filesystem per node?
I create volumes on the fly and creating new filesystems for each node
would be too much work.

Your thoughts?
