How do I integrate those options into the config or into fstab?

My configs are below - this is currently running on 
ftp.mozillaonline.com (http & ftp).  Wouldn't mind some hints on knobs 
to turn under io-cache and io-threads.

Client config:

volume releases
  type protocol/client
  option transport-type tcp/client
  option remote-host
  option remote-subvolume iothreads

volume io-cache
   type performance/io-cache
   option cache-size 2048MB             # default is 32MB
   option page-size 512MB               #128KB is default option
   option priority *:1
   option force-revalidate-timeout 2  # default is 1
   subvolumes releases

Server config:
volume releases
  type storage/posix
  option directory /opt/releases.mozilla.org

  volume iothreads
    type performance/io-threads
    option thread-count 4  # deault is 1
    option cache-size 32MB #64MB
    subvolumes releases

volume server
  type protocol/server
  option transport-type tcp/server
  subvolumes releases iothreads
  option auth.ip.releases.allow 10.6.80.*
  option auth.ip.iothreads.allow 10.6.80.*
