[Gluster-users] Very slow ls

I mounted the filesystem with trace logging turned on and can see that
after the last successful READDIRP there is a lot of other connections
being made the clients repeatedly which takes minutes to complete.

Please see attached for log file.

I wrote a simple perl script to open the directory and read the entries, it shows the same effect, the last call to readdir which returns NULL takes nearly a minute to return. Doing a recursive read on the sub directories can take 10 minutes...
