I am new to gluster and evaluating it for my production environment. After

better read performance for small files and the glusterfs/FUSE mount gives
better for large write operations.

2) If I am using NFS mount at the client I am most likely loosing the high
availability feature of gluster. unlike fuse mount where if primary goes
down I don't need to worry about availability.
Basically my production environment will mostly have read operations of
files ranging from 400KB to 5MB and they will be concurrently read by
