Hi Alexander,

Yes that is geo-replication working directory and you can run the
below command to get the location.
  gluster vol geo-rep <mastervol> <slavehost>::<slavevol> config working_dir

This directory contains parsed changelogs from backend brick which are
ready to be processed. After a batch is processed it will be
automatically cleaned up for next batch processing.
It does not depends on volume size but on config value "
changelog-batch-size " the max size of changelogs to process per
