[Gluster-users] Tuning for small files

I'm also quite interested by small files performances optimization, but 
I'm a bit confused about the best option between 3.6/3.7.

Ben Turner was saying that 3.6 might give the best performances:

What kind of gain is expected (with consistent-metadata) if this 
regression is solved?

I tried 3.6.5 (last version for debian jessie), and it's a bit better 
than 3.7.4 but not by much (10-15%).

I was also wondering if there is recommendations for the underlying file 
system of the bricks (xfs, ext4, tuning...).
