I've been leaning towards actually deploying gluster in one of my
projects for a while and finally a probable candidate project came up.

However, researching into the specific use case, it seems that gluster
isn't really suitable for load profiles that deal with lots of
concurrent small files. e.g.


The first two are rather old so maybe the situation has changed. But
the bug report and mailing list issue in June ring alarm bells.

Is gluster really unsuited for this kind of workload or have things
improved since then?
