[Gluster-users] Node sizing

Hello all.

I just noticed that rebuilding arbiter bricks is using lots of CPU and
RAM. I thought it was quite a lightweight op so I installed the arbiter
node in a VM, but 8CPUs and 16GB RAM are maxed out (and a bit of swap
gets used, too).

The volume is 28*(2+1) 10TB bricks. Gluster v 5.5 .

Is there some rule of thumb for sizing nodes? I couldn't find anything...
