[Gluster-users] Slow NFS Mounts on one node in a replicated cluster

I have two servers running Ubuntu 14.04 and Gluster 3.7.6

Each volume is a made up of two bricks replicated between the two servers.

I have this very strange situation whereby NFS mounts against ONE of the 
servers incurs a 5 second wait during the mount phase. NFS performance 
is fine after the mount.

FUSE mounts are fine on both server.

This slowness in NFS mounting occurs across ALL volumes on only one of 
the server

There are some messages in nfs.log on the server that has the slow 
mounts that are not on the server where the mounts are instant.

I have done some Google searching but nothing definitive comes up.

Has anyone ever seen this?

Any pointers on where else to look or how to further debug?

I see that the glusterfs process is responsible for mounting and am not 
sure how to ask it to display debug info.

I have done a tcpdump and see nothing other than the repsonse to the 
mount request takes 5 seconds to complete on one node in the set.
