[Gluster-users] Brick Preference

Just wondering how Gluster determines which brick to send files to. I've got 4 bricks setup right now, and benchmarking 4 clients against them, and it seems that all the clients prefer bricks 3 and 4, rather than 1 and 2...

It's setup in a replicating/distributing model.

Is there a way to 'weight' them? It would make sense for doing this on commodity hardware, as Gluster advertises - send less traffic to smaller bricks, and more to the bigger bricks.
