Mounting VolumesYou can do standard Unix mounting
mount -t glusterfs server1:/volume /mnt/volumewhich has the disadvantage of specifying one server IP. If this server is down you can't mount the volume even though it is available. What is important to know is that the given server is only used to fetch a volume info file, which itself lists all servers providing this volume. So the volume info file doesn't need to be on the volume servers. Also remember as with NFS consider noatime mount options when you have many small files accessed often.
Problems on Ubuntu 12.04
When adding GlusterFS share to /etc/fstab do not forget to add "_netdev" to the mount options. Otherwise on next boot your system will just hang!
Actually there doesn't seem to be a timeout. That would be nice too.
As a side-note: do not forget that Ubuntu 12.04 doesn't care about the "_netdev" even. So network is not guaranteed to be up when mounting. So an additional upstart task or init script is needed anyway. But you need "_netdev" to prevent hanging on boot.
