Hi Sam,
in short, yes: Gluster commands a severe performance penalty. While you 
can recover some of it via tuning, comparing it to a native filesystem 
is going to show bad results.

For more information, please read the thread here (where I discussed the 
very same issue): 

This in no way means Gluster is bad. Rather, it a specific product with 
its specific use cases and expected workloads.
