[Gluster-users] horrible write performance after upgrade from 3.2 to 3.3

I have a brick on a MD RAID5 array formatted with ext4 on a gigabit network.
My brick is located at /srv/media.
dd if=/dev/zero of=/srv/media/test.zero reports 150MB/sec
dd reading reports 300MB/sec
I have used iperf to verify it is not a network adapter issue. I get
1gbit/sec each way.
On GlusterFS 3.2 my read and write performance was as expected.
100MB/sec each way.
On GlusterFS 3.3, my read speed is still 100MB/sec but my write speed
never exceeds 10MB/sec. It seems something is purposely throttling my
writes like I'm on a 100mbit network.
CPU usage on the server and client are around 25% during the transfer.
No other processes are eating I/O.
Any ideas on why write performance is suffering?
