In our environment, with only 100s of files, this has been livable, but if you have 100k files, I’d imagine it is quite a wait to get the clients state of the volume back to usable.

I'm interested in hearing more about this situation. How expensive,
and where do you see the cost? As CPU usage on the client side? On the
brick side? Or what?
