Description of problem:

[root@gqac009 nfs-3]# time find pax -type d | wc -l ; time find pax | wc -l

real 524m23.144s
user 0m4.781s
sys 0m39.305s

real 435m9.818s
user 0m6.625s
sys 0m44.162s
[root@gqac009 nfs-3]#

[root@gqac009 pax]# time du -sh *
64K home
32K lost+found
41G mnt
23M selinux

real 525m1.208s
user 0m3.941s
sys 0m48.601s
[root@gqac009 pax]#

Steps to Reproduce:

/mnt/pax# pax -v -r -w / .

Allow it to run overnight or for a couple of days, this will recursively copy /mnt onto /mnt/pax. Make sure you keep a few GB of data on /mnt (assuming GlusterFS is mounted on /mnt) which is enough to create quite a depth of directory hierarchy.

Setup is a four node distribute on NFS.

Deferring this to post RC. Patch available in upstream but a careful evaluation is necessary before that can be backported to release-3.3
Comment 2 Niels de Vos 2014-04-17 07:38:42 EDT
This bug is getting closed because a release has been made available that should address the reported issue. In case the problem is still not fixed with glusterfs-3.5.0, please reopen this bug report.

glusterfs-3.5.0 has been announced on the Gluster Developers mailinglist [1], packages for several distributions should become available in the near future. Keep an eye on the Gluster Users mailinglist [2] and the update infrastructure for your distribution.
