Hello Daniel,

I am following the tips from techforce.com.br blog, those recommend many
tunning options to speed up write and read of small files.

Bellow the files:

*glusterfsd.vol*
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
volume posix
  type storage/posix
  option directory /data/export
end-volume

volume locks
  type features/locks
  subvolumes posix
end-volume

volume iothreads
  type performance/io-threads
  option thread-count 16
  subvolumes locks
end-volume

volume writebehind
  type performance/write-behind
  option cache-size 1000MB
  option flush-behind off
  subvolumes iothreads
end-volume

volume brick
  type performance/io-cache
  option cache-size 2000MB
  option cache-timeout 1
  subvolumes writebehind
end-volume

volume server-tcp
  type protocol/server
  option transport-type tcp
  option auth.addr.brick.allow *
  option transport.socket.listen-port 6996
  option transport.socket.nodelay on
  subvolumes brick
end-volume

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
