What is better?  Is making a client part of the cluster and then making the
mount via "localhost":

# service glusterd start
# gluster peer probe somehost
# mount -t glusterfs localhost:/volume /mnt/temp


# mount -t glusterfs somehost:/volume /mnt/temp

I guess with mounting it via somehost, one would have to very picky to
choose which host to pick as if it goes down that mount may stop working.
 Am I correct?  So what is better?
