Just to follow up, my speeds read and write speeds have not balanced out yet.

These are the settings on my NFS gluster system:

# gluster volume info

Volume Name: datastore
Type: Replicate
Status: Started
Number of Bricks: 1
Transport-type: tcp
Options Reconfigured:
performance.read-ahead: off
performance.io-cache: on
performance.write-behind-window-size: 4MB
performance.io-thread-count: 64
performance.cache-size: 134217728
nfs.trusted-sync: on
nfs.port: 2049
