AFAIK this feature is not available in 3.X series. It was introduced in
If this feature is off in gluster your atime will be updated according to
your mount options. There are several options availabe. Look at $ man mount.
I found this options: noatime, atime, nostrictatime, strictatime,
norelatime, relatime, nolazytime, lazytime

But at the moment I don't know what klind of mount options should be set if
the feature utime is working
