I agree that there is a performance problem on FUSE mounts on RHEL 5 clients. A while back I opened https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=896314. Check out the DD numbers where I mount the same volume on a RHEL 5 and a RHEL 6 client:
Just wildly shooting from the hip I would guess that the problem is in the version of FUSE packaged with RHEL 5, but I don't have any evidence to confirm or deny that. I have tested with 5.6, 5.8, and 5.9 and I saw the problem across the board. Is there any way you could switch your clients to RHEL 6 until this gets resolved? If not maybe try mounting NFS?
