There has been some work that is being done on improving the small file performance. 
Few of the many steps were md-cache enhancements, compound fops implementation. 
Both these will be available with 3.9 release. There are many more improvements 
planned [1].

Subject: [Gluster-devel] Progress about small files performance 

Any progress about the major issue with gluster: the small files performance? 

Anyone working on this? 

I would really like to use gluster as storage for maildirs or web hosting, but with the current performance this wouldn't be possible without adding additional layers (like exporting huge files with iscsi or creating an NFS VM on top of gluster)
