Its my understanding that with many/small file operations involving 
directory lookup etc on disperse volumes gluster has to check each 
directory on each brick set, which leads to very high latencies. This is 
where a metadata server is an advantage I guess.

Of course if you're running a replica <n> volume, non-dispersed you 
should only need to do lookups locally. It would be interesting to know 
if thats a optimization gluster does.
