[PVE-User] Several issues with gluster as storage.

There is no special topology between the nodes, it's a 10Gb dedicated segment only for that purpose.
To mount glusterfs into PVE you can follow this tutorial
That is the proxmox way, and it's supposed to not to use FUSE, but to use the gluster translator (correct me if I'm wrong) and therefore no mount options are needed.

What kind of topology do you have between your replicas ? Maybe you have
a congestion between them which results as a timeout on file creation.
While on the topic I would love to know where is the mounting command of
glusterfs into PVE architecture ?
It can be very useful to tweak the mounting options like relatime or
atime to increase performance.

It takes a long time (I guess depending the hard disk size) and if I try to access via ssh when it is trying to create the VM, when I cd to the glusterfs mountpoint it seems to be stalled (I cannot do a double-tab for autocomplete the name, for instance).
