[Gluster-users] read consistency amongst bricks / sync writes

This is a newbie question as i am relatively new to glusterfs but
nonetheless... :)

I believe the file propagation is asynchronous between the bricks and was
wondering whether a subsequent write to a file and read of that same file could
possibly happen on different bricks, so that the following scenario
would happen:

- write on brick a
- read on brick b (file not found)

Or, in a different fashion, if it would be possible to force sync
writes across all
bricks (with the obvious performance hit) to avoid the latter scenario ?

This is using glusterfs 3.1.1.

Thank you,
