Hi John,

thanks for your remark. However:

Well, in this case all servers (both GlusterFS and SAMBA) are running
on VMs whose storage
is in a Ceph cluster -- so "local disk" really means an RBD volume
over 10Gb/s ethernet...

(I know that it makes little sense to run GlusterFS over Ceph storage,
but that's what we have and I cannot serve RBD volumes from Ceph
directly unless they're attached to some VM...)
