Does gstripe read an entire stripe at a time? If so, why do that instead of
just reading a few requested blocks?  If not, then is there any advantage
to large stripes?

Apparently it won't read anything larger than your stripe size which defaults to a miserable 4k.

depending from what's needed, but unless i need just huge linear transfer, i set stripe size to something huge, like 256MB.

then single read is rarely split on 2 disks, while multiple reads have good chances to touch different drives
