> Sure, and all that applies equally to both NFS and gluster, yet in Max's example NFS was ~50x faster than gluster for an identical small-file workload. So what's gluster doing over and above what NFS is doing that's taking so long, given that network and disk factors are equal? I'd buy a factor of 2 for replication, but not 50.

Sorry If I didnt make it clear but both NFS in my tests is not well
known classic NFS but glusterfs in NFS mode.
