[Gluster-users] recovery from reboot time?

There are 2 things happen after a reboot.

1. glusterd (management layer) does a sanity check of its volumes, and sees
if there are anything different while it went down, and tries to correct
its state.
  - This is fine as long as number of volumes are less, or numbers of nodes
are less. (less is referred as < 100).

2. If it is a replicate or disperse volume, then self-heal daemon does
check if there are any self-heal pending.
  - This does a 'index' crawl to check which files actually changed when
one of the brick/node was down.
  - If this list is big, it can sometimes does take some time.

But 'Days/weeks/month' is not a expected/observed behavior. Is there any
logs in the log file? If not, can you do a 'strace -f' to the pid which is
consuming major CPU?? (strace for 1 mins sample is good enough).
