[Gluster-users] Blog post: Troubleshooting GlusterFS performance issues

I've been working on a new GlusterFS deployment over the last week and I 
wrote up some of the experiences I had while trying to get the setup 
ready for production:


In a nutshell, I was trying to figure out why my shiny new servers 
weren't giving me the speed I assumed they would out of the box 
(something I'm sure every new user goes through!).  It was quite 
enlightening to run through the various components looking for 
bottlenecks.  In the end I found that NFS was many times faster than 
FUSE... which seems to contradict what most people see.  I haven't yet 
deployed my Gluster, so there's still time for more architectural 
changes if new information comes in!

Hope it helps someone!  Comments and questions appreciated.  Thanks,
