Thanks for running that test. That's a significant difference.
I wonder in the Samba > Gluster client > Gluster server scenario whether the
slowness is the Gluster client transacting with both servers rather than
just the local one.
You've at least confirmed my suspicion that Samba > NFS > Gluster is not at
any speed disadvantage. And in many months of running that way, as I said,
there have been no performance complaints - although with this an
unsupported configuration it could turn out we've just been lucky and that
there's something yet that can go wrong.
