If you will only ever have one application writing to one file at a time, you
can disable locking in replicate which should improve write performance.
If you don't want self-heal functionality you can disable the writing of
changelogs as well, which should give you a further boost in write performance.

You can find details about these options at:  http://gluster.com/community/documentation/index.php/Understanding_AFR_Translator
