[Gluster-users] gluster with xfs

We're starting to set up a 4 node gluster system. I'm currently trying
to decide on the low-level options, including what filesystem to use.

For various reasons I would be more comfortable with XFS over ext4,
but I read in the 'Introduction to Gluster' that 'XFS (can be slow)'.

I haven't found any other details about this, and wondered if anyone
has more information or experience of using gluster with XFS. Or if
anything has changed with 3.1. We don't want it to be slow, and I'm
happy enough using ext4 if necessary, but just wanted to see what
others thought first.
