[Gluster-users] Strange behaviour when executing tail on file

I've experienced some strange behaviour when I use a 'tail -f' on a file with the FUSE client for GlusterFS 3.4.

When I append some text on one node it takes a longer time on the other node running the tail that already opened the file, than a tail that is started *after* I appended the text.

I assume one of the timeout values for the FUSE client that caches something and is responsible for this behaviour, but which one is it and why only on opened files?

Thanks for any help in advance
