[Gluster-users] GlusterFS on mailservers

Hi all,

I just read this one on the dovecot web:
FUSE / GlusterFS

FUSE caches dentries and file attributes internally. If you're using multiple
GlusterFS clients to access the same mailboxes, you're going to have problems.
Worst of these problems can be avoided by using NFS cache flushes, which just
happen to work with FUSE as well:

mail_nfs_index = yes
mail_nfs_storage = yes

These probably don't work perfectly. 

Can someone comment on that? Does anybody use glusterfs as a storage for
mailboxes/mailfolders ?
