Hi Horacio,

I don't think you are doing something wrong. We tried the same (serving 
rails apps off of gluster mounts) and performance was terrible. Since 
there is no lock manager in gluster, the gluster client needs to check 
all server nodes when the file is accessed locally. This kills 
performance with many small files.
