Hello friends,

I have sucessully installed Gluster 2.0.4 in the 
configuration of 3 nodes with 2x bricks per node with 
replication and distribution. While adding an extra brick, 
which had to became a replicated copy of another brick I 
have noticed that gluster is doing replication wile 
accessing a non-replicated data in the rel-time - so 
listing the contents of the non-replicated directory with 
large-size files became unacceptably slow, since replication 
of 10GB data takes time over 1GB network - so the question, 
is there any way (options) to have the given replication in 
the backround, so not-affecting the user work? Or this is 
just is not implemented?
