To make a long story short, I made rdma client connect files and
mounted with them directly :
#/etc/glusterd/vols/pirdist/pirdist.rdma-fuse.vol /pirdist glusterfs
transport=rdma 0 0
#/etc/glusterd/vols/pirstripe/pirstripe.rdma-fuse.vol /pirstripe glusterfs
transport=rdma 0 0
the transport=rdma does nothing here since it reads the parameters
from .vol files . However you'll see that they're now commented out
since RDMA has been very unstable for us. Servers lose their
connections to each other, which somehow causes gbe clients to lose
their connections. IP over IB however is working great, although at
the expense of some performance vs RDMA, but it's still much better
