[Gluster-users] Gluster's read performance

Hello All,

I am new to gluster and evaluating it for my production environment. After
reading some blogs and googling I learned that NFS mount at clients give
better read performance for small files and the glusterfs/FUSE mount gives
better for large write operations.

Now my questions are

1) What do we mean by small files? 1KB/1MB/1GB?
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
different threads.
