I’ve been getting requests for GlusterFS benchmarks from every direction lately and I’ve been a bit slow on getting them done. You may suspect that you know the cause of the delays, and you’re probably correct. ;-) Quite a few different sites argue that the default GlusterFS performance translator configuration from glusterfs-volgen doesn’t allow for good performance. You can find other sites which say you should stick with the defaults that come from the script.
