[Gluster-users] Gluster Performance - 12 Gbps SSDs and 10 Gbps NIC

Let’s try the simple things:
Check if you can use MTU9000 and if it’s possible, set it on the Bond Slaves and the bond devices: ping GLUSTER_PEER -c 10 -M do -s 8972
Then try to follow up the recommendations from https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_gluster_storage/3.5/html/administration_guide/chap-configuring_red_hat_storage_for_enhancing_performance

Hello list, I'm hoping someone can let me know what setting I missed.
Hardware:Dell R650 servers, Dual 24 Core Xeon 2.8 GHz, 1 TB RAM

Created virtual "data" disk from the above 8 SSD drives, for a ~20 TB /dev/sdb

OS:CentOS Streamkernel-4.18.0-526.el8.x86_64glusterfs-7.9-1.el8.x86_64
IPERF Test between nodes:

[  5]   0.00-10.04  sec  11.5 GBytes  9.86 Gbits/sec                  receiver

All good there. ~10 Gbps, as expected.

All good there. 2182MB/s =~ 17.5 Gbps. Nice!

Oh no, what's wrong? From 2182MB/s down to only 115MB/s? What am I missing? I'm not expecting the above ~17 Gbps, but I'm thinking it should at least be close(r) to ~10 Gbps. 

Any suggestions?________
