Morning all ..

I've been testing a simple 3 node 2 osd cluster setup serving VM Images 
(proxmox). I had 2 bricks split over two nodes (replication) with SSD 

- if the Gluster Client (VM quest libgluster) is accessing data that is stored 
on the local brick, will it avoid hitting the network and just access the 
local drive? From monitoring the network bond that seems to be the case.

- if I added an extra brick to the local node would that same client then use 
it to stripe reads, improving the the read transfer rate?

- Geo Replication, the remote slave, it would be read only?
