[Gluster-users] Gluster distributed replicated setup does not serve read from all bricks belonging to the same replica

Our setup: We have a distributed replicated setup of 3 replica. The total
number of servers varies between clusters, in some cases we have a total of
36 (12 x 3) servers, in some of them we have 12 servers (4 x 3). We're
using gluster 3.12.15

In all instances what I am noticing is that only one member of the replica
is serving read for a particular file, even when all the members of the
replica set is online. We have many large input files (for example: 150GB
zip file) and when there are 50 clients reading from one single server the
performance degrades by several magnitude for reading that file only.
Shouldn't all members of the replica participate in serving the read
