[Gluster-users] Problem with too many small files

I am not sure how it works on Gluster but to mitigate the problem with listing a lot of small files wouldn't it be suitable to keep on every node a copy of the directory tree. I think Isilon does that and there is probably a lot to be learned from them which seems quiet mature technology. Could also have another interesting thing added in the future, local SSD to keep the file system metadata for faster access.
