[Gluster-users] General questions

I'm testing glusterfs before using it in production, it should be used to
store vm for nodes with libvirtd.

In production I will have 4 nodes connected with a dedicated 20gbit/s

Which version to use in production on a centos 7.x? Should I use Gluster
version 6?

To make the volume available to libvirtd the best method is to use FUSE?

I see that stripped is deprecated. Is it reasonable to use the volume with
3 replicas on 4 nodes and  sharding enabled?
Is there convenience to use sharding volume in this context? I think could
positive inpact in read performance or rebalance. Is it true?

In the vm configuration I use the virtio disk. How is it better to set the
disk cache to get the best performances none, default or writeback?

Thanks in advance for your patience and answers.
