[Gluster-users] Performance after failover

Hey, all.

I'm currently trying out GlusterFS 3.3.
I've got two servers and four clients, all on separate boxes.
I've got a Distributed-Replicated volume with 4 bricks, two from each
and I'm using the FUSE client.

I was trying out failover, currently testing for reads.
I was reading a big file, using iftop to see which server was actually
being read from.
I put up an iptables firewall on the active server, and the client hung, as
After some time, I guess about 30 seconds, the failover kicked in and the
went to the other server, resuming the read.

However, after going to the other server, throughput went from ~100MB/s to
Kicking off a new read after the previous one had succeeded went straight
to the second server,
with throughput still at ~25MB/s.

Is this the expected behavior for clients that have failed over from one
server to another ?
