Upgraded recently from 3.8.15 to 3.10.5 and have seen a fairly 
substantial drop in read/write perfomance


- 3 node, replica 3 cluster

- Private dedicated Network: 1Gx3, bond: balance-alb

- was able to down the volume for the upgrade and reboot each node

- Usage: VM Hosting (qemu)

- Sharded Volume

- sequential read performance in VM's has dropped from 700Mbps to 300mbs

- Seq Write has dropped from 115MB/s (approx) to 110

- Write IOPS have dropped from 12MB/s to 8MB/s

Apart from increasing the op version I made no changes to the volume 

op.version is 31004
