You can read from the back-end, but yes, we can't guarantee the timeliness or consistency of that data. Most users limit that access to backups, non-critical maintenance tasks.

Hi Craig, 

2. You can read from the back end, all writes should go through the Gluster mount point. 

This contradicts what I have read in the past. If a file is out of date on the current node, you won't get the updated version, so you are always supposed to read from the mount point. Right?
