Thank you for the prompt and insightful answer, James.  My remarks are

1.      Can we mount a GlusterFS on a client and expect it to provide
> sustained throughput near wirespeed?  <No>

In your scenario, what were the maximum read speeds that you observed?

> 3.      Does it put extra pressure on the client? <What do you mean by

> but that is dependent on what you set the client cache max for – in my case,
> 2GB. CPU utilization is usually negligible in my systems, network bandwidth

Thx for the insight.  Can you describe your current deployment a bit more,
like configs of the storage nodes, and the client nodes, and what type of
application you are using it for?  Don't want to be too intrusive, just to
get an idea on what others are doing.

Thank you once again for your remarks.
