[Gluster-users] NFS mounts with glusterd on localhost - reliable or not?

Actually, if you want to mount *any* nfs volumes(of Gluster) OR
exports (of kernel-nfs-server), you cannot do it with locking on
a system where a glusterfs(nfs process) is running(since 3.3.0).
However, if its ok to mount without locking, then you should be
able to do it on localhost.

He was saying you can't run kernel NFS server and gluster NFS server at 
the same time, on the same host. There is nothing stopping you from 
mounting localhost:/volume on all your boxes. That is exactly how our 
3.2.5 and 3.3.0 environments access volumes for the performance reasons 
you identified.
