I'm running thousands of small files over NFSv3 through NGINX with
distribute and have had the opposite experience. Unfortunately when
NGINX can't access a file over NFS it means a customer calling us, so
right now gluster is basically sitting idle (posted my output to the
list a while back with no response).
