[Gluster-users] Multiple volumes on one server

GlusterFS doesn't support cascaded DHT (is it suported in 2.0.7?), so 
you can only use DHT once either on server side or client side.  I'm 
wondering if exporting multiple volumes on each server and only using 
DHT at client side would lose some performance.
