I need to create a redunant 2-linux machines configuration so that the files on server1:/dir are in sync with the files on server2:/dir
I managed to configure GlusterFs to do this but while it works pretty fine with large files it works awfully slow when many small files are involved.
To understand better: a 150MB archive with 50K files is normally unpacked in 3-4 seconds on the regular file system but in more than 15 minutes on the GlusterFS parition!
After much reading and testing I couldn't significantly improve this.
I was wondering anyone has experience with another clustered file system that is capable of handling many small files better than glusterFS. Or if you have another suggestion on what should I try for keeping a dir on 2 servers in sync.
