Dear gluster experts,

Recently I have encountered a problem about posix_fallocate
performance on glusterfs client.
I use posix_fallocate to allocate a file with specified size on
glusterfs client. For example if I create a file with size of
1907658896, it will take about 20 seconds on glusterfs but on local
xfs or ext4 it takes less than 1 second.
What's the problem? How can I improve posix_fallocate performance for glusterfs?

Thank you very much.

The volume info is as bellow:
sudo gluster volume info volume_e

Volume Name: volume_e
