I'm wondering how many file I can create in a directory and if there's
performance issue as number of files growing.


Another question is, GlusterFS has any nice way to find files with a
prefix through glusterfs client in a directory and subdirectory ?

I'm using recursive readdir and I'm afraid to scan whole directory to
find files which start 'xyz'.
