I forgot to mention that our 10gigabit was also a shared vlan. We have a
dedicated external ip and "virtual" internal one on a single 10gbe
Ethernet Interface. However, I don't how much of an impact it would make
with just a 1gbit vlan. I have only just begun using glusterfs, and this
is my first server using 10gbe ethernet, so it might be that there is
still some performance gain that is available through some tuning.
