[Gluster-users] GlusterFS performance with small files.

I am currently looking into GlusterFS to use as a storage cluster for
our email storage. I want to mount the storage from different servers
(or VMs), services accessing the storage include exim, courier-imapd,
courier-pop3d. Our emails are stored in MailDir format, which is many
small files. I have read that GlusterFS doesn't perform very well with
small files, is this still the case?
I would like to achieve similar (or better) performance to our current
NFS setup, with the added redundancy that GlusterFS provides.
Is there any utilities I can use to test the performance?
Thanks in Advance
