Re: [OpenStack][Swift] Fast way of uploading 200GB of 200KB files to Swift

My guess is this concerns the SQLite database load distribution.
So yes, it still matters.

Just to be clear: turning replicators off does not matter at ALL when putting files in a healthy cluster.
Files will be "replicated" / put on all required nodes at the moment the put request is done.
The put request will only give an OK when there is quorum writing the file (the file is stored on more than half of the required object nodes)
The replicator daemons do not have anything to do with this.
