there is a section about metadata on page http://www.gluster.com/news.php

*"No metadata dependencies* - metadata management is frequently a source of
performance bottlenecks, particularly when there are a very large number of
files, and can be a single point of failure in traditional file
systems. *GlusterFS
eliminates this problem with intelligent data placement, an automatic data
distribution method *that optimizes the use of resources and eliminates
metadata bottlenecks."

yes,it's a advantage of GlusterFS. but yet i found no more detailed
information about the "intelligent data placement" "an automatic data
distribution methed". could anyone explain it in detail? and something about
file managemment~~~

i put the question in dev-maillist in which i hope someone could explain it
at the point of a developer.  the problem confuses me some days~~
thanks in advnace !
