Hi Vidya,

Thanks for asking. I think it will be worthwhile to look at the
archives and mailing list to see what other people have reported for
3.2. Few people already downgraded so not sure if they filed a bug.
But things that I have heard here:

1) gfid mismatch issue. Bug was filed
2) 0 byte file size. Bug was filed
3) Multiple files of same name showing up on the clent side
4) client hangs and crash
5) xattr mismatch on gluster mount points causing split brain errors.
Bug was filed

I certainly want to use 3.2 for geo-rep feature but problems that I am
seeing that others have faced has put me back and waiting for 3.2 to
become more stable. It will be really good to make 3.2 really solid
and stable.

Same for stat-prefetch (which is supposed to make ls quickier) on/off: nothing. Would be nice to see some scenarios/settings and their benchmarks.
