[Gluster-users] delettion of files in gluster directories

Hi all,

I have a rather simplistic question, there are dirs that contain a lot 
of small files in a 2x replica set accessed natively on the clients. Due 
to the directory file number; it fails to show the dir contents from 

In case of move or deletion of the dirs natively and from the server's 
view of the dirs , how does glusterfs converge or "heal" if you can call 
it the dirs as emptied or as if moved?

I am running on Glusterfs-server and Glusterfs-client version: 3.10.12.

To add more details,it is that we learned it the hard way that our app 
is shipping too small files into dirs with daily accumulaiton, accesed 
for serving by an nginx.

Here is a little more info:
