I'm on 3.10.5. Its rock solid (at least with the fuse mount <Grin>)
We are also typically on a somewhat slower GlusterFS LAN network (bonded
2x1G, jumbo frames) so that may be a factor.
I'll try to setup a trusted pool to test libgfapi soon.
I'm curious as to how much faster it is, but the fuse mount is fast
enough, dirt simple to use, and just works on all VM ops such as
migration, snaps etc, so there hasn't been a compelling need to squeeze
out a few more I/Os.
